Mental Health Misconceptions and Fighting For Crime Victims’ Rights

by Mike Ferguson

(St. Charles, MO) – It’s often under reported and misreported yet issues related to mental health are increasingly too important to ignore.

So, let’s get it right.

This week, Cindi Keele from Missouri’s chapter of the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) does some much-needed myth busting. It’s often an uncomfortable topic but mental health should be talked about more.

Also, Kim Case joins us again to talk about the role crime victims have in the justice system.

Having been a victim herself, Case brings both that perspective and one of an advocate. It’s not just about locking up the guilty, it’s about closure, justice and as much healing as can be provided to victims.
