Physical Becomes Mental: Program from the Award Winning Public Radio Series
Sometimes psychological symptoms like depression, psychosis or mania aren't a sign of mental illness, but a sign of physical illness. Diseases like thyroid disorders, multiple sclerosis and AIDS can have symptoms that might make you questions your mental health, and often these symptoms are the first signs of physical illness. In this hour, we hear about such illnesses from physicians who try to spot them and people who suffer from them. The guests are Dr. Caroline Carney-Doebbeling, Assistant Professor of Psychiatry and Internal Medicine at the University of Iowa College of Medicine and an expert in the area of combined illness, Dr. Tom Wise, Chairman of the Department of Psychiatry at Inova/Fairfax Hospital in Falls Church, Virginia and Professor and Vice Chairman at Georgetown University, Dr. Bradford Navia, an Associate Professor of Neurology and Psychiatry at Tufts University Medical School in Boston, and Camille Chatterjee, the news editor of Psychology Today.
