“Sherando Ferril-Cupid, shares her story from the opposite side of the Atlantic. We were impressed by her fresh and vibrant voice, as she explores how myths about mental illness in Jamaica are holding back treatments and acceptance in her homeland. Sherando breaks down the cultural beliefs and misunderstandings that madness is a form of sin, ill discipline, or a Voodoo curse.”
