In the Can with Tracy McCray and Courtney Lawson from NAMI [Video]
This week on In the Can, Tracy McCray talks to Courtney Lawson in the Y-105FM Women's Room and Courtney uses something she finds there!
Why walk to help NAMI? Because it's a great organization that's doing the important work of improving the lives of people living with mental illnesses and their families. I'm on the board because I believe so strongly that we need three things...
a) To do away with the stigma and misunderstandings over mental illness.
ii) Raise awareness so people know it's OK to ask for help, that it's a sign of strength and it doesn't need to cost a fortune.
3) I deal with mental illness every day. Every. Day. Some days are really hard, and they turn into weeks of really hard. If i can help let people know they aren't alone, there is a way to get help, and that help can be life-saving, then I'll keep on shouting from the rooftop (or into the microphone, really).
Courtney was in the studio with me yesterday, and we made a spoof commercial about pirates! Watch it as it happened live on the air!
