A group that formed at Burr and Burton Academy last fall is seeing some of its efforts bloom. Not only have the yellow tulips the group planted last fall bloomed into a beautiful garden, but they say they've seen some signs of positivity and kindness sprouting as well.
What do the Portland International Jetport, the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in New Hampshire, and one of America’s largest retailers have in common? Each of them – accompanied by the Fuller Craft Museum in Massachusetts, the Science Museum of Minnesota, and Time magazine’s 2017 Instagram Photographer of the Year – are part of a breakthrough phenomenon that will transform society’s understanding and attitudes about mental health.
Ray, Debi and Bob of Greater Portland's 100.5 FM are joined in studio by Alison Ingalls. She is representing the Yellow Tulip Project. Alison explains why and how she got involved. She describes her battle with depression and anxiety struggles. It is important to bring awareness and comfort in talking about these issues.
