Mental Illness

Audio Revolution! investigates the world of the mind. Hosts Savannah Chapman of Capital High and Max Kalyani of the Academy of Technology and the Classics guide listeners through this very heavy show. From a history of therapy, to who decides sanity, to drugs and the mind to coming of age stories of people dealing with mental illnesses, this show will both reach your heart and mind.

Selfless By Nature

Ashly Ramirez participated in Youth Media Project’s 2009 Summer Intensive to create this piece, her first, which portrays a young woman’s struggle through childhood and adolescence.  Themes of abuse, domestic violence, neglect, mental illness and institutionalization are depicted in poetic and lyrical detail.  This piece has been used in advocacy groups to dialogue about suicide and domestic violence.
