Mental health impacts everyone, and yet in Iowa, we are facing a mental health crisis due to the shortage of mental health professionals. On the stage, Ramona's super power is to share the stories that she hears in her therapist's chair, with details changed to protect her clients' confidentiality, normalizing the fact that mental health issues are real!
