Podcast 7: Inside our Minds


Alyssa Cypher and I discuss her Pittsburgh based group ‘Inside our Minds:’ how and why it was formed and what it has accomplished. We also discuss the mental health model and the Mad Pride’ movement as well as the stigma kids face in school for being ‘different’ in the rush for safety after shooting incidents such as the one in Santa Fe, Texas

Inside Our Minds works to elevate the voices of people with lived experience of mental illness and madness in Pittsburgh. Through our community programming, we want to build a community where open conversations about mental illness and madness can take place.

Stories discussed:

Texas Tribune: After Santa Fe shooting, Gov. Greg Abbott sees a West Texas mental health program as a statewide model

Yahoo/Reuters: Accused Texas high school gunman described as bullied loner in a trench coat
