Chemical World: Working to Undo Stigma

Lyzzi Borkenhagan

In this episode of Chemical World, hosts discuss the shame and stigma around mental health and recovery, and the effects on people seeking help. Hosts dive into the shame and stigma they have felt from others and themselves, in recovery and before recovery. 

KDNK Membership Director Kenna Crampton and Peer Recorvery Coach at Mind Spring Health Maggie Seldeen debut their new Public Affairs show Chemical World. This program aims to de-stigmatize drug addiction and mental health,  discuss different recovery models and harm reduction programs and explore evidence based practices in treating addiction. Topics will include the history of drug laws, connections between poverty and drug addiction as well as personal recovery stories. 

Kenna has been a DJ on KDNK for 9 years. She grew up at KDNK as her mom Flash has been a DJ since 1983. She hosts a music show, "Flyin' the Coop" alternating with her mom, Fridays 10-12 and has a public affairs show, Chemical World which airs every second Monday of the month 4:30pm.
