Reflections on the Joker’s Popularity and What America Can Learn From Gotham City’s Mental Health System: An Interview With Micah Howe
Children’s Mental Health Network, September 11, 2020
In the latest episode of The Optimistic Advocate, I had the honor of engaging in conversation with Micah Howe, a dedicated mental health advocate from rural Iowa. Micah candidly shared his journey through mental health treatment and support, and his evolution as an advocate. Micah was scheduled to speak at the 33rd Annual Research and Policy Conference, back in March 2020. COVID-19 put a halt to the conference, but I knew I wanted to have the opportunity to speak with him. Micah provides some great tips for those with mental illness, their families, and loved ones. Micah is a strong advocate and a rising voice for those with lived experience. Enjoy the interview!
