In this special ninth episode of the Charlie Rose Brain Series, Charlie invites to the table two experts on mental illness that are also sufferers themselves. Elyn Saks is a professor and expert in mental health law, and she suffers from schizophrenia. Kay Redfield Jamison is a clinical psychologist and author who has suffered from bipolar disorder since her early adulthood. These two tell their personal stories of coping with their disease. The rest of the panel joins in to look at the brain science involved in depression, manic depression, and schizophrenia. They discuss the best available treatments including medication and psychotherapy, and ways that the stigma of mental illness can be confronted so that people will seek help more quickly and health care can be provided more adequately for sufferers.

On Episode Nine of the Charlie Rose Brain Series, a discussion of mental illness with Kay Redfield Jamison of Johns Hopkins, Elyn Saks of University of Southern California, Jeffrey Lieberman of Columbia University, Helen Mayberg of Emory University, Stephen Warren of Emory University, and Eric Kandel of Columbia University.
