VIDEO: A caregiver's tale of mental illness

Jan 29, 2020

As part of WBFO’s Mental Health initiative, we offer stories of stigma and struggle, an inside look at mental illness and its impacts.

In this video, we present mental illness from the caregiver's point of view, with Judy Capodicasa telling what it has been like for her dealing with her son's -- and husband's -- struggles.

Her story touches on both the health care and criminal justice systems and includes not only a sense of how mental illness has touched her life, but also how she has found the support and help to go on.
