The crisis of disappearances in Mexico continues, and many of them go unsolved.

Relatives of people who’ve disappeared often join together to look for their loved ones — sometimes they find their family members’ remains and sometimes they don’t. But, either way, the experience is traumatizing and leaves relatives with mental health challenges. Many times those, too, go unaddressed or under-addressed.

Author and journalist Terry Greene Sterling joined some of those family members as they looked for loved ones and talked to mental health experts in Mexico about those experiences.

She joined The Show to talk about what she learned.
