How people’s formative years can affect them forever

Hi, I’m Anannya Gupta. I recently explored the world of mental illness and how prevalent it is in Canada. I also talked with a couple of Kitchener residents about their past and present struggles. I hope you enjoy these episodes.

Above is the first episode of Childhood Agonies where I welcome Gregory (Greg) Staley, a Kitchener resident. He talks about his personal life and family issues that affected his childhood.

The second episode of Childhood Agonies features Emmanuel Devries who talks about his childhood fears and mental illness.

The final episode summarizes the first two episodes of the show and also gives statistics on how many Canadians are affected by mental illness and how the government provides support.
