    Hi Erica, thanks again for your incredible stories. The below is such an incredibly sad tale, and one happening so often as a side story to gentrification of the inner city in Australia over the last 20 years of our affluenza. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-11-21/gatwick-st-kilda-alarming-number-women-in-prison/10513530?fbclid=IwAR3WVq44SBJRG-KomrH_yuGhmX0ZWpSnhOKbn7Fd_39CDc7s5QBXZ2ee5_I

    LOVE this show! Seriously, each episode has this beautifully nourishing quality which I’m not quite sure how you pull off. In 2012 I was sentenced to 60 months in prison which was the result of a seven year long addiction to heroin. Shortly after getting out I was diagnosed with ptsd, depression and anxiety (shocker, right?:). Episode 1: Sarah from your new This is Us series was like listening to someone telling my story. I immediately sent it to my brothers and parents so they might better understand me! So yeah, thank you so much for creating this show!
    One last thing, I’ve spent in total about a year in a few different county jails. Sadly, the vast majority of inmates are very poor and severely mentally ill unable to afford bail and receiving little if any treatment/care. They are us. Resilient, creative, insightful, curious, broken, valuable human beings deeply longing For their story to be heard and understood.
    Thanks again!
