WYSO Weekend: January 14, 2018

WYSO Weekend

This week on Dayton Youth Radio we have the first of two stories about teenagers dealing with the Opioid Crisis. Today we'll hear from Megan Johnson, a senior at Centerville High School. *Support for Dayton Youth Radio comes from the Virginia W. Kettering Foundation and the Ohio Arts Council.

 

On Friday, Dayton Mayor Nan Whaley stepped out of the race for Ohio Governor. Before a large crowd at the Dayton Public Library downtown, the mayor thanked those who had supported her campaign over the last eight months. Instead, Whaley threw her support behind Richard Cordray, who joined the mayor at the morning press conference. The former Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Director praised Whaley for her decision to support his campaign.

 

President Donald Trump Tuesday signed an executive order that would extend mental health care to service members transitioning out of the military and back to civilian life. We spoke to officials at the Dayton VA Medical Center who say transitioning from the military to civilian life can be difficult even under the best of circumstances. In this interview, Dayton VA Suicide Prevention Coordinator Karon Wolfe says adding mental health issues into the mix can be dangerous.
