Mental Health | KERA News

Mental Health

In 2013, shortly after the Newtown shootings, KERA launched a project called "Erasing the Stigma" with the Dallas Morning News and the Dallas mayor's office. It was the beginning of a years-long focus on mental health, which continues today. The coverage stretches from Sam Baker's weekly series Vital Signs to Lauren Silverman's "Breakthroughs" coverage of the University of North Texas Health Science Center in Fort Worth's efforts to lure mental health providers to rural clinics, to a Friday Conversation with Dallas County District Attorney Susan Hawk shortly after her return from hospitalization for depression. 

KERA's mental health coverage is funded in part by the Hersh Foundation.
