'Medicating Normal'

Medicating Normal

The interview posted above is from SDPB's daily public affairs show, In the Moment with Lori Walsh.

Medicating Normal is a new documentary on mental health and prescribed physical dependence.

The film dives into whether or not our mental health system counts on a drug centered approach to treatment too heavily.

Statistics show that up to 57% of Americans with mental health disorders are being treated solely with medication.

Today we're joined by award-winning filmmaker Lynn Cunningham. Also joining us is Nicole Lamberson, a mental health advocate, physician assistant, and leader of The Withdrawal Project.

The documentary "Medicating Normal" airs on SDPB TV Wednesday, May 4 at 9 p.m. CDT / 8 p.m. MDT.

Lori Walsh is the host and senior producer of In the Moment.
