Connections: Mental Health And Relationships

Connections_News_Highlight.jpg

We talk about mental health, relationships, breaking up, and the recent tragedy at Geneseo. Our panel discusses the broader issue of what happens when someone in a relationship -- typically a woman, but not always -- is in potential danger. We talk about culture and notions of ownership. Our guests:

  • Pamela Graham, prevention education and training coordinator, Willow Domestic Violence Center of Rochester
  • Michael Scharf, M.D., director of psychiatry residency and child and adolescent psychiatry fellowship training; and chief of the Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, University of Rochester Medical Center
  • Sara Shipley, wellness education programmer, St. John Fisher College

*At the end of the hour, Dr. Scharf mentions a report about mental health care for children. That story was by written WXXI's Beth Adams, and is available here.
