The Mountain Life - September 17, 2014
Today host Lynn Ware Peek is joined by guest co-host Carolyn Frankenburg. They speak first with Ulrich Boser about the social instinct of trust. Why do we trust and should we? Boser talks about how the emerging science of trust can transform our lives, rebuild our economy, and strengthen society.
Then a conversation about childhood mental illness with Liza Long. She has written a book called the Price of Silence: A Mom's Perspective on Mental Illness. It's expanded from a sober blog she wrote nearly two years ago after hearing about the Newtown, Connecticut, shootings perpetrated by Adam Lanza. Her blog, that went viral was called, “I am Adam Lanza’s mother,” she talks about her own child’s mental illness and about why the very serious conversation about childhood metal illness needs to be brought to light. Samantha Walsh, intervention specialist from Park City High school also joins us in the conversation.
