There's a lot of stigma in the African American community about getting help for mental illness. That's why the Milwaukee Health Department has launched a new workshop to help hair stylists recognize and treat emotional distress. We'll take you inside a local barbershop and hair salon as we hear from both stylists and clients who say having sensitive conversations makes a huge difference.
Coming up next:

Democratic National Convention
"...one of the biggest mistakes of 2016 was not more democratic attention was paid to this city in particular"
The Conservative Movement
"...politics shouldn't be a profession"
The Republican Party
"...I don't think that Donald Trump is the problem, I think he is representative of a systemic problem that we have."
