Licensed therapist Gillian Tanz joins us for our latest Orange is the New Black podcast. We broke down Season 4, Episode 11, “People Persons” in which Lolly (Lori Petty), Suzanne (Uzo Aduba), and Healy (Michael Harney) all cope with severe mental health symptoms, and the prison starts to collapse like an ugly cry face.
Recommended Reading: Once again, we chat about the Helping Families in Mental Health Crisis Act. Both Gillian and I have heard some people state that the act is useful, and others who claim that it’s harmful. I’m not one to preach about opinion, so here’s a thorough and thoughtful analysis of both the pros and cons by writer Pete Earley. I found his breakdown to be insightful and helpful in discerning exactly where the bill succeeds and fails in the bigger picture.
In addition, I reference an article about sympathizing with aggressors on Orange is the New Black. That article was published in Vulture, and it can be found here.
