What does the SCOTUS ruling mean for Connecticut women? And Exploring youth mental illness

Mental illness, especially among children, is hard to identify.

Today, we preview a new Ken Burns documentary--Hiding In Plain Sight: Youth Mental Illness. 

We talk with film director Erik Ewers, and Connecticut resident, Yanerry Acevedo, who’s featured in the film.

This documentary speaks directly to the children impacted by mental illness, and how trauma has shaped their worldview and influenced their well-being.

First, we talk about the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling reversing Roe V. Wade - what’s your reaction?


  • Claudine Constant - Public Policy and Advocacy Director of the Connecticut ACLU
  • Erik Ewers: co-director and editor of the Ken Burns film Hiding in Plain Sight: Youth Mental Illness
  • Yanerry Acevedo: featured participant in the documentary, New Haven 19 years old
