Derailed: When Mental Illness Throws a Life Off Track

Few people suffer as much from secrecy as patients and families touched by mental illness. Secrecy hurts. It contributes to the dilemmas that face us, whether we or our loved ones suffer from an intermittent mood disorder or from a severe mental illness that makes a productive life hard or impossible.

Derailed, a 5-part podcast series, helps to break the silence by bringing to life the authentic experience of one man suffering from mental illness, including the excruciating dilemmas – the “hard calls” — that face everyone in his circle — partners, kids, relatives, colleagues and doctors. Shining a light on these dilemmas, and on a broken system, is a first and important step toward change.
