More About The Price of Silence by Liza Long; Harold Koplewicz
 
 
 
Overview
Liza Long, the author of "I Am Adam Lanza's Mother"--as seen in the HBO(R) documentary A Dangerous Son--speaks out about mental illness

Like most of the nation, Liza Long spent December 14, 2012, mourning the victims of the Newtown shooting. As the mother of a child with a mental illness, however, she also wondered: "What if my son does that someday?"

The emotional response she posted on her blog went viral, putting Long at the center of a passionate controversy. Now, she takes the next step. Powerful and shocking, The Price of Silence looks at how society stigmatizes mental illness--including in children--and the devastating societal cost. In the wake of repeated acts of mass violence, Long points the way forward.
