There have been several stories in the headlines lately about the need for real change in New York’s prisons. Some are calling for inmates serving long sentences for non-violent crimes to be released early due to not only to the threat to their lives from COVID, but because their original sentences were too harsh. Even Governor Kathy Hochul has acknowledged that some people in prison deserve a fair shot at proving they have been rehabilitated.

Bruce Ario, author, City Boy and a series of other novels featuring characters living with mental illness, has had a busy month. He led a presentation about the benefits of occupational therapy for students studying the topic at St. Catherine University in St. Paul on March 2nd.
Ario says one of his favorite activities while spending time in a psych ward was shifting his focus to making something tangible. “When you have a mental illness, it’s like being trapped in a psychosis. Any escape you can get is welcome, and I really enjoyed getting to do something creative,” he said. While in the hospital, he recalls making a wallet and a set of moccasins.
Ario was diagnosed with schizophrenia back in the 1970s, a condition he developed after suffering a severe head injury in a car accident.
Then on March 9, Ario shared his story of recovery at Great River Energy in St. Paul. The topic of his discussion there was sensitizing people to mental health issues. His latest novel is Changing Ways, which focuses on the relationship a Manhattan judge has with his daughter, who lives with a mental illness.
