In October of 2012, ONE’s Mental Health Justice Group was approached by Nick Walker, a Vocalo Storyteller and a Certified Recovery Support Specialist (CRSS) at Thresholds. Walker wanted to know more about the group’s work around the Williams v. Quinn Consent Decree to inform a piece he was creating for local NPR affiliate called Vocalo Radio (see Volaco.org).
The story aired the morning of Thursday, January 24th, 2013 as a part of “Morning Amp” on 89.5fm in Chicago. The ONE Mental Health Justice Group would like to encourage everyone to take the time to listen to one of the many stories of people living with mental illness in our communities.
