Mental Illness and Family Dynamics & Selfless Acts of Love
December 10, 2014
Hosted by Kathryn Zox
Kathryn interviews behavior research scientist Rachel Pruchno PhD on her memoir “Surrounded by Madness: A Memoir of Mental Illness and Family Secrets”. Mental illness is the most prevalent of all diseases suffered in the United States. According to NIH estimates, approximately 78 million Americans - about one in four - battle a diagnosable mental illness each year. In her fiercely candid memoir, Dr. Pruchno shows how mental illness threatened to destroy her own family, not once but twice.
Kathryn also interviews bestselling author Jennifer S. Holland on her book “Unlikely Heroes: 37 Inspiring Stories of Courage and Heart from the Animal Kingdom”. Holland’s devotion to all species sent her on a journey to discover everything she could about the animal world. During her research she found a common thread: animal heroes act not for recognition or fame, but for kindness, loyalty and love. Holland has written for National Geographic, The Discovery Channel, NPR, and The Washington Post.
