Chronic Catastrophe: Episode 1, The Mind

Part 1: The Mind

Our first episode looks at the impact of repeat catastrophes on our mental health. Hosted by Maritza Camacho, our first episode asks whether PTSD is the most accurate diagnosis for the anxiety, depression, worry and fear that we feel before, during and after wildfire season. PTSD indicates we’re “post” disaster — past it — but in Sonoma County, the disasters keep coming. We ask how communities and governments support residents’ mental and behavioral health and how can individuals cope — and thrive — in this situation.
