This week on Hear Cincinnati, host Maxim Alter, digital reporter Lucy May, digital editor Meghan Wesley and 9 On Your Side anchor Chris Riva discuss a program that helps teens and students dealing with depression or thoughts of suicide, Riva's interview with the mother of a Sandy Hook victim, the Florida school shooting, the young shooting survivors who have turned to activism and more. 

Maxim then talks with several young volunteers with St. Vincent de Paul about their mission to purposely live under the poverty line for one year so they can better serve their communities. 

Later, reporters Craig Cheatham, Lucy May and Dan Monk talk about the rising number of sexual harassment cases in Cincinnati -- and why the women speaking out often pay a price.
