From one of the most prominent mental health experts of our time, a memoir told in 14 essays. Through these tales from when he was 8 until 17, and their modern-day essay expositions, Dr Lloyd Sederer illustrates our times and the perspectives gained as a family man, a psychiatrist, and a public health doctor more than five decades later, in Ink-Stained for Life.
Dr Sederer will be joined in conversation by Dr Andrew Chen, the chief medical officer of the US Olympic Ski Team.

More than fifty million people a year are diagnosed with some form of mental illness. It spares no sex, race, age, ethnicity, or income level.
