Listen here >

We have a crisis in the US…a mental health crisis. We have higher numbers of people seeking help and support than ever, and unfortunately there are not enough therapists to fill the need. All of the resources and treatment options are full and overflowing. But what is the solution?  What if our communities had more creative options to support mental wellness?  These are questions that Rachel Harrison has been exploring. As someone who’s been in the mental health field for 25 years, Rachel has been having these conversations with people in government, with people in the nonprofit world, with people in the business world, and people in the mental health world.
