Life with schizophrenia: Live chat with Anna Griffin and mental-health experts, 11 a.m. Monday

From The Oregonian, October 6, 2013


[Eds. MHAP Board members Jenny Westberg and Jason Renaud will join Anna Griffin of The Oregonian for an online conversation with readers, per below.]

Twenty-three-year-old Melanie Carlson hears voices. She sees strange things — messages hidden in fast-food cups, crowds of people connected by green lines of energy — and struggles to keep the psychotic episodes caused by her schizophrenia from destroying her life. Read reporter Anna Griffin‘s story about Carlson and her struggles.

On Monday at 11 a.m., join Griffin and mental-health experts here live, when they will answer your questions and chat about programs that help young people control their mental illness and why early intervention is so important. You can post your questions and thoughts in the comments section below at any time before or during the chat.
