In September pubTV stations will have access to Healthy Minds, an award-winning show on mental health from WLIW in New York. The American Psychiatric Foundation has announced it will contribute $50,000 to fund national distribution of the 13-episode 2008-09 season, and three episodes from the show’s first season. “My hope for the show is to encourage people who may have a psychiatric condition to seek help and not to suffer in silence,” host and psychiatrist Jeffrey Borenstein told Psychiatric News. “I end each show by saying, ‘With help, there is hope.'” The show has won several Tellys and a Folio Award.
