Paul Lanier speaks to WUNC about NC’s youth mental health

On the morning of April 4, 2024, Paul Lanier, PhD, MSW, Co-Director of Sheps Center’s Program on Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services and Systems Research and Professor of Social Work, spoke on WUNC 91.5 FM North Carolina Public Radio.

Dr. Lanier was one of two experts who joined “Due South” host Jeff Tiberii for an in-depth discussion on North Carolina’s youth mental health and Psychiatric Residential Treatment Facilities (PRTFs) specifically.  The conversation is a follow-up to WUNC Supervising Editor for Digital News’ Jason DeBruyn’s three-part series earlier this week on the subject of PRTFs.
