IN THE MEDIA | Mental Health Mosaics
We are excited and honored to participate in Mental Health Mosaics from Out North, which is using art, journalism, and conversations to foster a deeper understanding of mental health and wellness to destigmatize conversations around mental health and provide people with the information and inspiration to drive positive change.
One component of this project is the Mental Health Mosaics Podcast, which currently features two members of our clinical mental health team and a young adult receiving VOA services. Check out the links below to listen in!
Breaking the Silence
In this first episode, you’ll hear from VOA Alaska’s own Parinita Shetty, a clinician with our School-Based Mental Health program. She joins host Anne Hillman to share her experience and expertise on cultural stigmas and having difficult conversations with not only others, but with yourself. Listen here or wherever you find your podcasts!
Houselessness and Mental Health
Zack, a young adult in our Supportive Housing program, shares his story of navigating houselessness and learning how to focus on his mental health. He joins host Anne Hillman with Cory Farrow, a Mental Health Clinician in our Supportive Housing program. Listen here or wherever you find your podcasts!
