This City Is Killing Me: Community Trauma and Toxic Stress in Urban America

by Jonathan Foiles Author

In This City is Killing Me, social worker and therapist Jonathan Foiles delves into how community trauma in Chicago is affecting individual mental health. He asks how it is that we can we be surprised when someone is struggling with depression and their community is riddled with poverty, violence, and deeply rooted trauma. The work shows how in order to address the mental health of individuals, we must address the mental health of the community they are a part of.
