Inside the Mind of An American Family Guest: Robert Kolker; author of "Hidden Valley Road: Inside the Mind of an American Family" The Galvins seemed like the model American family. With twelve bright, good-looking children and two hard-working parents, they were the symbol of the baby-boomer generation. Things changed, however, when their oldest son started showing signs of schizophrenia. They declined even further when five more sons followed suit. Their complex story, although deeply tragic, has led to our current understanding of schizophrenia, and hope for the future. Students with Schizophrenia Guest: Cecilia McGough; founder and CEO of Students with Schizophrenia Cecilia McGough was diagnosed with Schizophrenia when she was in college, and now she leads a group to fight the stigma related to mental illness among students all around the United States.
