Chicagoans participate in the 'Out of the Darkness' walk for benefit suicide prevention.

Oct. 28, 2011

As WBEZ's Out of the Shadows series comes to a close, Eight Forty-Eight hears from a local woman whose 19-year-old recently committed suicide after a long struggle with depression. Then, suicide prevention advocate Stanley Lewy, attorney Mark Heyrman and child psychologist Dr. Terrence Koller join Eight Forty-Eight to talk about getting mentally ill kids the help they need. And, October is Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender History Month; the Windy City Times’ Tracy Baim discusses the political potential of various awareness campaigns. Plus, the Dueling Critics duke it out over Momma’s Boyz at Teatro Vista theater. And, Paul Cosca, artistic director of the Brikenbrak Theatre Project, gives listeners his advice for surviving a zombie outbreak and avoiding a dull Halloween weekend in the latest installment of The Weekly Guide.
