Janet Hays interviews Nicole Forston (Producer), and Laura Pogliano (mother and mental health advocate), about the new film documentary Shattered Families: Collapse of our Mental Health System. The lack of a functional mental healthcare system all too often leaves untreated seriously mentally ill people incarcerated, homeless and dead. It also takes a physical and emotional toll on caregivers who have few support options when a loved one is in mental health crisis.

After hearing Dr. Stephen Seager interviewed about his book: Behind the Gates of Gomorrah: A Year with the Criminally Insane - where he documents atrocities happening at the Napa State Psychiatric Facility where he was working, Nicole Forston reached out to encourage him to create a visual representation of the book. What ensued after that first conversation resulted in something much larger. The film is an excellent historical summary of how well-intentioned mental health laws, gone awry, have shattered families.

Laura Pogliano, featured in the film along with other families, has turned the tragedy that happened to her family as a result of being unable to access services and care for her seriously mentally ill son into mental health advocacy. She created Parents4Care for Serious Mental Illness to assist families when they find themselves having to drop out of life and short of resources when a loved-one is spiraling downward. Read more about Laura and her organization

“…whatever national mental health system once existed, has now totally collapsed. Where once we offered treatment, patients with untreated serious mental illness now suffer unspeakable degradation as their families endure intolerable pain and indignity trying and failing to get needed medical care for their disastrously sick loved ones.” - Stephen Seager, MD

The radio station is falling apart. Because of the broken machines, the broadcast is constantly interrupted to the point y'all are unlistenable. I donated $225 to this year's Marathon, where did that money go? Having working CD players is paramount to having a radio station. Until WTUL replaces those broken machines, I have to listen to other stations, and that sucks!

Wow WTUL, I'm embarrassed for yall today :( The DJ on air at the 9:30am air break (interrupting Democracy Now) made a total ass of himself, whining about how we aren't listening to HIM comment on the news. Meanwhile he's interrupting the family of the man killed by police in Baton Rouge earlier this week, as well as other folks connected to that story. I think it is obvious why we have compelling interviews with folks who are relevant to the news instead of an irrelevant angry man-child like Jimmy Huck. Presumably this only happened because of some kind of summertime staffing shortage, but still, we the listeners deserve better. When the airwaves aren't being hijacked by pathetic figures like him, WTUL is still one of the best radio stations in New Orleans. But please don't ruin it, and don't like people like this go on the mic nonstop, interrupting a really important story like that of Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge.

HEATHERS THE MUSICAL is the darkly delicious story of Veronica Sawyer, a brainy, beautiful teenage misfit who hustles her way into the most powerful and ruthless clique at Westerberg High: the Heathers. But before she can get comfortable atop the high school food chain, Veronica falls in love with the dangerously sexy new kid J.D. When Heather Chandler, the Almighty, kicks her out of the group, Veronica decides to bite the bullet and kiss Heather’s aerobicized ass… but J.D. has another plan for that bullet. Brought to you by the award-winning creative team of Kevin Murphy (Reefer Madness, “Desperate Housewives”), Laurence O’Keefe (Bat Boy, Legally Blonde) and Andy Fickman (Reefer Madness, She’s the Man). HEATHERS THE MUSICAL is a hilarious, heartfelt and homicidal new show based on the greatest teen comedy of all time. (based on the film by Daniel Waters) With its moving love story, laugh-out-loud comedy and unflinching look at the joys and anguish of high school, HEATHERS will be New Orleans’ most popular new musical. This talented cast of NOCCA Alum, current students, faculty and professionals from the community are taking you back to 1989 for this hilarious campy spoof of the movie. Yes, your favorite lines from the movie are in this production, along with the characters that made this cult film a classic. This show deals with adult situations and is recommended for mature audiences only. Presented by the NOCCA Stage Company and directed by Big Easy Award winning director Blake Coheley, HEATHERS THE MUSICAL opens June 9th and runs through the 19th on the NOCCA campus. Musical Director is Big Easy Award winner Jefferson Turner, who turns up the volume in this new rock and roll stage adaptation. See the NOCCA website for ticket info and showtimes. ( “Corn nuts” will be on sale at the concession stand!! “Are you in, or are you out?”
