This week we talk to Dixon Chibanda, a psychiatrist and researcher at the University of Zimbabwe.  He focuses on community mental health and developed the "Friendship Bench" community mental health intervention.  It's now been scaled up to over 70 primary care clinics in Zimbabwe.

We also speak with Manmeet Kaur, executive director and founder of City Health Works in Harlem.  City Health Works trains local health coaches to work with patients with chronic illness.  These coaches bridge the gap between these patients and their doctors when it comes to treatment.  

Contributor Christin Kay is passionate about the rich variety of arts, cultural experiences and stories in the Roaring Fork Valley. She has been a devotee of public radio her whole life. Christin is a veteran of Aspen Public Radio, serving as producer, reporter and interim news director.
