08/18/15: Mental Health; First Coast Connect Book Club; Jacksonville Children's Commission

The gaps in Florida's mental health care system are laid bare in the experiences of Sean Harriford and his family, detailed in the Florida Times-Union this week. We discuss their story and the state's treatment system with Florida Times-Union reporter Derek Gilliam, Sean's brother Jonathan Harriford, and Mental Health America of Northeast Florida director Denise Marzullo.

In this month's edition of our First Coast Connect Book Club, book blogger Stacey Goldring joins us with some of her favorite "blicks" - books that have been adapted for film or television.

And we learn about the host of afterschool programs being offered by the Jacksonville Children's Commission from CEO Jon Heymann.
