The presidential primary in New York is heating up, and for the first time in decades, it actually matters.

Three New Yorkers are in the race. New York is Hillary Clinton's adopted state. Bernie Sanders was born in Brooklyn. And Donald Trump is hoping to win his home state after a punishing double digit loss in Wisconsin to Ted Cruz.

Joining us are Rep. Hakeem Jeffries from New York's 8th congressional district representing Brooklyn and Queens, a Clinton supporter, and Erika Andiola, the Latino outreach strategist for Bernie Sanders.

We'll also discuss the possibility of a brokered Republican convention with political analyst and pollster Doug Schoen and political consultant Hank Sheinkopf.

Also this week, there is one widespread medical condition that has remained very much in the closet: Mental illness, and mental health, are still shrouded in silence.

Half a million New Yorkers suffer from depression.

Fewer than 40 percent receive help.

And $14 billion is lost in productivity. But more is being done now.

joining us are two people who are making big strides to make that happen.

Kimberly Williams of the Mental Health Association of New York City and Sarah Vander Schaff, a journalist who has written honestly about her own mental health issues.
