A writer joins us to talk through the process of evaluating whether advice we receive is helpful or not. Then, a psychiatrist helps us better understand the mental health disparities facing people of color and how we can make treatment more equitable.

Featured in this Show

  • Should you really take that advice?

    Advice is everywhere, but it’s not all good. We talk about how to tell if the advice you’re getting — whether it’s from your therapist or your mother — is good, or should be ignored.

  • Reducing mental health care disparities for people of color

    July is National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month and many people of color in Wisconsin aren’t receiving adequate mental health care. We talk to a UW Health psychiatric consultant about the prevalence of the issue and possible solutions.
