Understanding Mental Illness, Episode 2: Community Based Programs

Understanding Mental Illness

QPTV Presents: Understanding Mental Illness “Community Based Treatment” tied for first place in the Science, Health and Spirituality category. This program, part of a series about mental illness, explores how modern therapies and medications can enable people to remain at home, with family and friends nearby, as they journey toward recovery. For too long, people feared that a diagnosis of mental illness meant a life sentence in an institution. Today, community based treatment offers an effective alternative to hospitalization for many who suffer from a mental illness.
