On May 17th, WHQR featured a timely and needed discussion on Mental Health on their program “Coastline.”   Susan Lewis, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Presbyterian minister practicing as a staff psychotherapist at the Community Counseling Center, was one of two featured guests participating in the discussion.  Topics raised during the discussion included mental health challenges faced by adolescents (and adults) in the age of social media, faith and faith communities and mental health, forgiveness, and much more.

If you missed the broadcast, you can listen to a recording of it here:  http://whqr.org/post/coastline-mental-health-struggles-are-universal
