Submitted by the Event Organizer
Join us virtually for the first of a three part series of conversations about serious mental illness, what it is, how it is treated, what its effect is on families and what could or should be different.
This event features Nathan Filer, author of “The Heartland: Finding and Losing Schizophrenia” and “The Shock of the Fall” in conversation with Angie Coiro. Filer digs deep into mental illness services in the UK and the scope of schizophrenia. What is any mental illness diagnosis supposed to mean? Who gets to decide? What happens next? Filer addresses ostensible causes, symptoms, as well as stigma and language. Filer seeks to discover and articulate how mental illness imprints on the people who live with it.
