"For the first 150 years of its existence, psychiatry was spinning its wheels, getting a bad reputation." – Jeffrey Lieberman

Each year, approximately 42.5 million American adults - or 18.2 percent of the total adult population in the United States - suffers from some form of mental illness. Despite increased awareness of condition like autism, depression and schizophrenia, the public and the medical profession still struggle to understand what causes these conditions and how they can be treated effectively.

Join us for a conversation with Jeffrey A. Lieberman, M.D., Chairman of Psychiatry at Columbia University Medical Center and author of Shrinks: The Untold Story of Psychiatry, on the history of psychiatry's evolution from "mystical pseudoscience" to a respected medical discipline that saves lives.
