About Mysteries of Mental Illness

The landmark series Mysteries of Mental Illness places the stories of those living with mental illness today in a broader historic, scientific, and social context. The series traces how our understanding of mental illness has evolved from an ancient conception of spiritual affliction to the latest 21st century neurobiological breakthroughs. At a time when mental health has been thrust to the fore by Covid 19, Mysteries of Mental Illness provides an invaluable framework to create deeper national understanding and dialogue.
