On this podcast, Mindy Greiling, a mental health advocate and former state representative, has hosted a series of conversations around mental health care in Minnesota: the first was with Alisa Roth on the state’s criminal treatment of mental illness, and the second with Dr. George Realmuto on mental health and substance abuse. In this third and final installment in the mental health series, Mindy talks about recovery with John Trepp, who she calls a “maverick” and wishes there were more like him in the mental health system. Trepp is author of Lodge Magic: Real Life Adventures in Mental Health Recovery and is former executive director of Tasks Unlimited, Minnesota’s Fairweather lodge program, which provides housing and recovery services for people with mental illness. This conversation was recorded in September 2020.
