Approximately 1 in 3 Americans meet the criteria for having a mental illness — but we rarely see or hear about it. Discovery Health wants you to know more about it with their special “Psych Week” shows about mental illness.
Discovery Health will open a meaningful dialogue on mental health with Psych Week, a weeklong programming event from Sunday, May 2, through Thursday, May 6. With premieres airing nightly at 9 PM (ET/PT), Psych Week will profile individuals dealing with a spectrum of afflictions and addictions, from anxiety disorders and schizophrenia to multiple personalities and bizarre compulsions.
“Discovery Health is putting an unprecedented emphasis on mental wellness, presenting an unfiltered look at a variety of rare and common mental disorders through the eyes of the people who live with them,” said Laura Michalchyshyn, president and general manager of Discovery Health.
“With Psych Week’s six premiere programs and expansive online offerings, Discovery Health hopes to defuse preexisting taboos and raise awareness for mental health—while also providing our audience with information and resources to help improve their own lives.” Click to read more and watch a preview video…
