“Balancing Work, Medication And Mental Illness”

Article Link (Page also has a link to an audio broadcast of the NPR program that Elyn Saks was interviewed on)

This January 30, 2013 article on the NPR website talks about Elyn Saks and discusses her views about how mental illness can be both disabling and at the same time create a sort of super thinking.  She explains that some had told her to maybe consider working as a cashier for a couple of years and then decide if she wanted to pursue something else, but Saks found that for her, work offers a way for her to harness her brain and give her a bit of a break from her delusional thinking.
