Radio La Colifata

Just found out that the mental hospital where my aunt was institutionalized when I was little, El Borda, broadcasts a radio from inside the institution that aims to destigmatize mental illness. Listening to an episode where patients candidly discuss the plans, since revoked, to close the hospital.

Mental health, by survivor

I found this article very poignant and equally interesting. Now I want to read about dialectical behaviour therapy, so I’ve requested Marsha Linehan’s book from the Concordia Library. (Right now I am deeply grateful for Enlightenment ideas about public access to information. Yay do-gooder projects of modernity!)
