At 3 pm Laura Shine will speak to Langhorne Slim! Many songs on his latest release, Strawberry Mansion, directly address his struggles with anxiety and substance abuse. He’ll speak to Laura about these theraputic and deeply emotional songs.

Remember there are mental health resources for you, family and friends.
