(Both links include audio and text)

This series talks about Elyn Saks who managed to hide her diagnosis of Schizophrenia while successfully earning multiple degrees.  She later wrote a book, and self-disclosed about her illness much to the shock of many who knew her.  She speaks on mental health issues now using her own experiences as a way to reach others.  She indicates that she is pro-psychiatry, but anti-force, which she explains within the audio of part 2 linked above.
