I was fortunate to participate in a panel discussion at the University on how to reduce stigma in mental health. It is part of their ongoing Big Questions series in collaboration with Minnesota Public Radio. I had a fun time and I think lots of important issues were raised. I believe the podcast (News with Tom Weber) will be available to listen here.
