Fred Friendly Seminars': Minds on the Edge

When should an individual lose their right to self-determination?

Should we impose treatment on those who refuse it? How can we support the recovery of people with mental illness? The answer to these questions come loaded with real consequences and strong conflicts in a free society. Cokie Roberts hosted as panelists worked through the hypothetical stories of Olivia and James and grapple with the conflicts, costs, and consequences of MINDS ON THE EDGE.

Frank Sesno moderated an engaging conversation sparked by a diverse panel including: Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer, Nobel Laureate Dr. Eric Kandel and other physicians, policy makers and mental health professionals, some of whom struggle with mental illness themselves. Minds on the Edge delivered a conversation rife with emotion, unique perspectives, and challenging ideas.
