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.
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!)
