SUNY Geneseo

A SUNY Geneseo student has found himself getting some national publicity over a parody account he created on Twitter.

According to Isaiah Kelly, a 20 year old SUNY Geneseo sophomore from Brighton, this all began a few weeks ago over winter break, when one of the issues the campus was having had to do with asbestos particles found in a college library.

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.
