WFUV's Strike a Chord campaign is focusing on mental health stereotypes.

A mental illness is a medical condition that causes mild to severe disturbances in thinking, perception and behavior. Recovery is possible. But there are many misconceptions about mental illness that can lead to a variety of problems, like trouble finding work or housing.

As part of WFUV’s Strike a Chord campaign, this week’s Cityscape is focusing its attention on mental illness and efforts to combat the stereotypes.
