The Mystery of Mental Illness

The Agenda with Steve Paikin

Is mental illness a biological condition? And has that assumption paved a path that, despite good intentions, has often resulted in failed treatments and worse? Those are the questions that animate Anne Harrington's new book, "Mind Fixers: Psychiatry's Troubled Search for the Biology of Mental Illness." Harrington, a professor of the history of science at Harvard University, joins The Agenda to discuss her research.
