Mtn. Talk Monday: Depression in Appalachian Women with Medical Anthropologist Claire Snell-Rood

Mtn. Talk Monday: Depression in Appalachian Women with Medical Anthropologist Claire Snell-Rood

For this edition of Mountain Talk Monday, our guest is the medical anthropologist Claire Snell-Rood who has been studying depression in Appalachian women for the last three years in southeastern, Kentucky through a partnership with the UK Center for Excellence in Rural Health. Snell-Rood and host, Kelli Haywood, discuss the upcoming WRAP (Wellness Recovery Action Planning)– a community lead treatment program that is about to get underway in Hazard, Kentucky, how women in eastern KY deal with depression, and a whole lot more. Snell-Rood completed a similar evaluation of the women in the slums of Delhi, India which she documented in her book — No One Will Let Her Live.
