Hosted by criminal defense lawyer Elizabeth Kelley, AuthorChats features in-depth interviews with writers about their recent works. In this episode, she talks with Lynn Nanos, LICSW, about her book Breakdown: A Clinician's Experience in a Broken System of Emergency Psychiatry. Pete Earley, Author of Crazy: A Father's Search Through American's Mental Health Madness (2007) Pulitzer Prize Finalist), writes this about Breakdown: "Lynn Nanos guides readers through our nation's shameful treatemnt of Americans with debilitating mental illnesses. Only someone with her in-the-trenches experience can articulate the flaws with such authority. Her dedication to helping throw-away patients trapped on a treadmill of hospitalizations, homelessness, and jails is heroic and inspiring." http://www.elizabethkelleylaw.com.
