Out of the Shadows: Ana's story

Ana is one of the many people profiled during WBEZ’s two-week series Out of the Shadows, exploring mental health and youth.

A warning: listeners may find parts of her story disturbing.

Tomorrow, the series explores some of the problems with medicating young people and learns more about the unique illnesses affecting children. Stay tuned all of this week and next for more from Out of the Shadows.

Out of the Shadows will explore the fractures in mental health care for children in Illinois and illuminate how it affects our youth.
