Inside Mental Health Care: "Sherry Goes Sane"

Sherry Joiner

We debate the proper treatment of mental illness a fair amount in this country. 

Sherry Joiner can shed some light on the debate from the patient point of view. 

Joiner emerged from a turbulent childhood with some serious mental challenges. 

After years of episodes, she finally got the treatment she needed. 

Joiner tells her story in the book Sherry Goes Sane.

She joins us on the Exchange to talk about her experiences.
