A Disaster Called Schizophrenia




A Disaster Called Schizophrenia
 1986 | WHAS Radio

With this outstanding program WHAS Radio continues its Peabody-winning tradition of excellence in its commitment to the interests and needs of citizens within and outside its listening area. A personal triumph for Mary Jeffries, who researched, produced, wrote and narrated the program, A Disaster Called Schizophrenia both exposes the myths of the disease as well as drives home the reality of this serious and increasingly common mental illness. It does this with chilling personal insight. Evidence of the success of this program can be found in the hundreds of people who responded, either during a follow-up panel discussion, or by writing the station for further information. For providing an educational service with stirring emotional impact, a Peabody Award to WHAS Radio for A Disaster Called Schizophrenia.
