My comment for NPR’s 1A show on “mental health”

National Public Radio has really helped me get through the trials of the last year – especially the pandemic and the Trump travesty. Never before have I had so much need for good, solid, trustworthy information.

Last Friday, the host of NPR’s wonderful call-in show, 1A, announced that on Monday they would be having a show on the topic of “mental health” – and invited listeners to submit 45-second voicemail comments.

I did submit the following comment later that evening – and it actually got aired on the show on Monday!

Below is a link to that whole one-hour segment of the show on 1/10/21: 

There is actually a lot more to my story about that particular segment on mental health. I will be posting a longer version of the story, probably later today.
