On this edition of Conversations from Studio B, host Tom Walker talks with Lisa Marie Griffin about her struggles with bipolar disorder and major depression.
Griffin is a NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) peer-to-peer mentor and the president of the grass-roots organization the Ohio Center for Advocacy Training and Support (OCATS).
The homepage of the OCATS website states, “OCATS was formed by a group of dedicated consumers and former recipients of mental health services in Ohio. With the help of other interested groups, associations and enthusiastic individuals, we have been able to create a statewide self-help advocacy organization”.
