The Intersection of Politics and Mental Health feat. Veronica Carbajal

August 31, 2020

The personal is political and the political is personal.  Mental health is both personal and political! It's about viewing the person as a whole within a larger system.  My guest today really, really gets this.

Lawyer and mayoral candidate, Veronica Carbajal, is a guest on today's episode to talk about her views on politics and mental health.  If you are an El Pasoan, this episode provides a window into our city politics.  We talk about #BLM, the City's COVID-19 response, gentrification, and Vero's plan on changing the City's governmental landscape.  Get ready for some truth bombs #realtalk #therealdeal!
