MINDS ON THE EDGE: Facing Mental Illness connects the
dots between agonizing dilemmas facing individuals and families who are living with mental illness, medical practices that can be obstacles to treatment, and public policies that all too often lead
to prison rather than providing support for recovery.
Produced by the Fred Friendly Seminars for broadcast on public television, MINDS ON THE EDGE explores the heart-wrenching situation of parents desperate to help their daughter get treatment when she develops mental illness in college. When she resists, what are their options? The program panelists also engage the challenging issue of the merry-go-round of homelessness and jail that has become all too common for many individuals living with schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and other serious mental illnesses.
