Documentary details

Mysteries of Mental Illness is a four-part series that will air on MPB Television at 8 p.m. and 9 p.m. June 22 and June 23.

An Olympic boxer struggling with OCD... a Harlem pastor wrestling with depression... a young scientist coming to terms with her schizophrenia…

One in four people will experience a mental illness at some point in their lifetime. Yet a diagnosis of a mental disorder still carries a stigma that a heart condition or other physical ailment doesn't, largely because mental illness has been so poorly understood for so long. Mysteries of Mental Illness places the stories of those living with mental illness today in a broader historic, scientific and social context over four powerful, hour-long episodes.

Organizer Mississippi Public Broadcasting

Organizer of MPB Virtual Screening/Discussion on Mysteries of Mental Illness

Mississippi Public Broadcasting has always been at the cutting edge. Whether as Mississippi’s first statewide broadcast system or as the first to complete the conversion to digital technology, MPB has remained ahead of the curve. This commitment to innovation can be found in everything we do, especially in our education department’s work on innovative methods of improving education for teachers and students alike.

A Brief History of MPB: In 1969 the Mississippi Authority for Educational Television (MAET) was established by the Mississippi State Legislature with the mission of providing "educational and instructional professional growth and public service programs for the students and citizens of Mississippi." MAET first hit the airwaves in 1970 as Mississippi Educational Television (ETV), and has served Mississippi ever since, providing quality educational television programming that links our state's communities together. Over the years the face of the organization has evolved as we have added radio and news programming and established a robust education department focused on providing educational resources and curriculum to Mississippians of all ages. 

Known as Mississippi Public Broadcasting (MPB) since 2003 when Mississippi ETV and Public Radio in Mississippi (PRM) merged, the organization has been a leader in informational broadcasting. Through our award-winning productions, our educational resources and our acclaimed hurricane coverage and response operation, MPB has exhibited a commitment to educating and informing Mississippians.
