On this episode, host Jason Schreurs welcomes Tina Rushing of Punk Rock Saves Lives, a non-profit organization that provides mental health and harm reduction resources at punk shows and festivals, as well as community events. Tina talks about how doing mental health advocacy work within the punk scene has been mutually enriching between her organization and the punks it provides resources for.
