Hope for the mentally ill
On this week’s episode, we delve into a subject that affects millions of people around the world: psychotic disorders.
Millions of people in the United States are affected by mental illness each year. One in 20 Americans have lived with a serious mental illness such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder or major depression.
Yet, there is hope. While psychotic disorders pose a severe health risk, symptoms can improve with comprehensive treatment. Psychosis prognosis is also favorable, particularly with early intervention after the first psychotic episode.
On our show today, we explore real-world experiences of psychotic disorders as told by a new documentary film “Breaking the Silence.”
Our guest: Dara Sanandaji, mental health advocate and creator of "Breaking the Silence."
