We often talk about mental illness as an "invisible disability". What happens for those with visible disabilities that also struggle with mental health issues? Join hosts Kristin Walker and Joe Fusaro with advocate Jose Rosario to discuss his mental health journey. Jose is a young man that just wants to change the world and create a space where we can support each other and remember that we are not alone. As a member of many marginalized groups, he believes we must empower others to rise. Jose graduated from RIC with a B.A. in Psychology and a B.S. in Chemical Dependency and Addiction Studies. He recently accepted the Coordinator of Disability Services position at RIC. I have just been named the Chairman of the RI Democratic Party’s “I’m Able” caucus and am slated to serve on a Congressional Diversity Advisory Board.
