New Video: Elyn Saks’ TED Talk About Her Schizophrenia

USC Law Professor, Yale Law School graduate, and author of The Center Cannot Hold: My Journey Through Madness, Elyn Saks speaks forcefully before a TED Conference about the tragedies and triumphs she has experienced in her lifelong psychodyssey with schizophrenia  (14 minutes). Saks epitomizes the hope that families must harbor for their loved ones with mental illness even when they are at their worst, knowing in the long run that our loved ones–with proper treatment, attention, support, and love–can also rise to the heights. (Many thanks to grad school pal Gary Phillips for pointing PsychOdyssey to this link.)
