    Extraordinary episode on THE single issue that causes ‘distortion’ in ALL of our lives. Whether personal, familial, or external, mental ‘instability’ affects our ability to adapt to, or be manipulated by, our environment. The subject is addressed head on, not aggressively, in reaction to the all too common bad outcomes, but thoughtfully, with loving care, & through unbiased & balanced scholarship. Must be shared, widely.
