7 - (Dis)ability & Mental Health

This episode features conversations on (dis)ability and neurodiversity. Our panel features Monica Ogden, Elaine Laberge, and Joanne Neubauer, bringing together folks from multiple parts of the spectrum of ability to talk about what it’s like to live in a world that caters mainly to those who are able-bodied and neurotypical.

We also feature a definition guide to terms relating to dis/ability and impairment, poetry by Heather Kelly, and a spotlight on local resources.
