Dr. Tracey Skale - ''Minds on the Edge''

Tracey Skale, MD, is the Chief Medical Officer of Greater Cincinnati Behavioral Health Services, an organization which currently serves 4000 people or 60% of the severely mentally ill in Greater Cincinnati. Dr. Skale participated in the PBS program and Fred Friendly Seminar ''Minds on the Edge: Facing Mental Illness'' along with a panel of experts from various fields who regularly come in contact with the mentally ill. The panel includes members of the judicial system, professors of psychiatry, hospital professionals, a Nobel Laureate, and a father and author whose son has a mental illness, among others. The program uses two hypothetical scenarios to discuss the public policy and social issues associated with mental illness.
