"Crazy" is a word we often throw around lightly, just to joke and tease. But when someone in your family suffers a serious mental illness, your perspective can do an about-face. When writer Pete Earley’s own son broke into a neighbor's house during a psychotic episode, Earley began to learn what happens to mentally ill people who break a law. Dr. Clif Tennison, Chief Clinical Officer with Helen Ross McNabb Center, responds to Earley’s book Crazy: a father's search through America's mental health madness. (Recorded July 17, 2013)
