Nov 8, 2019

'Joker' has shattered box office records and drawn both acclaim and criticism for its depiction of mental illness and violence. WBFO's Nick Lippa hosted a Facebook Live conversation Friday about what 'Joker' and other Hollywood blockbusters get right and wrong about mental illness. Nick was joined by Karl Shallowhorn, Education Program Coordinator at Community Health Center of Buffalo, and Alex Garcia, Mental Health Program Director at Horizon Health Services' Broadway Recovery Center.
