Today we’re spending some time with guests who can open the door for us on the reality of living with serious mental and physical illness and how we can better understand and connect with those affected by it. Cecilia McGough is the founder and CEO of Students with Schizophrenia, and we talk about the stigma surrounding schizophrenia and what her organization is doing to empower college students who have schizophrenia. Jenny Giering is a musician and theater composer, and we go into how her chronic illness has informed her art and her life with her family.
