Confronting the Fragmentation of Services in the Mental Healthcare
Show Summary[avatar user=”NancyDuffy” size=”thumbnail” align=”left”]Nancy Duffy[/avatar]
This week we talk about the fragmentation of services within the healthcare system, specifically regarding mental health. We’ll explore the story of a woman who lost her daughter, Tamara, to suicide in part because of her disenfranchisement with the system – something described quite well in a memoir recently published in The Walrus titled, Death by a Thousand Cuts.
Tamara Levine was a brilliant young woman whose fate was caught up in a quagmire of failed connections that would ultimately cause her to lose faith in the very system that was supposed to help her.
Carol Cowan-Levine, Tamara’s mother, as well as a registered psychotherapist, joins us to share her important story. And later in the show – we’ll speak with Robert Moroz who is the Integrated Director of Outreach and Community Services for both Hotel-Dieu Grace Health and the Canadian Mental Health Association (Windsor), to discuss what needs to be done with the destructive, fragmented nature of our system.
