MIAW Talk for NAMI Louisville


First of all, I addressed the Grand Rounds of the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Louisville School of Medicine on September 25, 2008, not on January 25, 2008 as erroneously posted in a prior blog entry.


More importantly, on October 6, 2008 The Honorable Susan Schultz Gibson, Jefferson Circuit Court, Division 12 and I spoke on “Two Voices, Two Perspectives:  Mental Illness, Treatment and Recovery" as the keynote address for the Mental Illness Awareness Week Program for NAMI Louisville.  Our talks contrasted my story of hope and life while living with severe mental illness with Judge Gibson's discussion of the tragic fate of her husband, who suffered from essentially untreated severe depression prior to his death.
