Vocalo on WBEZ Ep 65 - Latina Women and Mental Health, Train Company, DJ Charlie by vocalo published on 2013-05-13T22:18:01Z In this episode: We continue our discussion of metal health movement in Chicago. Multiple studies of Americans and mental health have found that Latinas are at a greater risk for depression and suicide than their counterparts, yet they are less likely seek out services due to non-diagnosis or cultural stigmas. What are the specific causes of mental stress for Latinas and how can they be better served? A group of mental health care workers have banded together to form Yo Soy Ella to address these specific needs. Founder Sarah Allen joins hosts Molly Adams and Brian Babylon in studio to talk about what they're doing. After the first listen of their latest full-length The Remains of An Effort, it’s clear that Train Company is more than a blues band. The group crafts a diverse multi-layered sound with discernible traces of jazz, pop and even orchestral arrangements, while effortlessly switching between anthemic rock vocals and airy indie rock introspection. The band played live in our performance studio. Finally, we close the show as usual with a killer DJ set, this time from Chicago's mainstay - DJ Charlie. Tune in.
