I'm watching live this powerful story/narrative of the cycle of trauma in Chicago, with much emphasis given to the Mental Health effects of constantly living in a place where violence has happen, is happening, and will happen again and again. Discussions with kids about PTSD symptoms with Trymaine Lee. Worth watching. Excellent discourse about trauma in understandable terms. And this obviously is not just happening in Chicago.
Emphasis on how mental health care is inadequate, marginalized, not adequately (if at all) covered by health insurance...and how seeking mental health services continues to be a source of shame and how there is a DESPERATE need for treatment seeking to be normalized and dramatized as NECESSARY for moving forward in life, particularly in the face of chronic trauma situations.
