One in five people has a diagnosable mental disorder, but fear and shame prevent them from seeking help. This series aims to remove the stigma of mental illness and demonstrates that with help, there is hope. Healthy Minds makes medical jargon accessible, humanizing common psychiatric conditions through inspiring personal stories paired with the latest research, diagnosis and treatment options. News veteran Mike Wallace reveals his battle with depression. Actor Patty Duke and broadcast journalist Jane Pauley talk about their experiences living with bipolar disorder. And while the celebrity interviews might bring a broader audience to the series, the most compelling programs are the average families that reflect the audience at home, successfully dealing with autism, obsessive-compulsive disorder, chemical dependency, teen suicide, and other mental illnesses.
