StoryCorps: Overcoming mental illness together
Josh Lampert was a 19-year-old away at college when his recreational drug use triggered a mental illness called psychotic depression. It involved intense hallucinations. He was forced to move back in with his parents, and together they spent the next few years struggling to manage his illness. Now in his early 30s, Lampert considers himself fully recovered: he’s healthy, independent, and working. Lampert and his father Chuck Lampert visited the San Francisco Storycorps booth in July 2013 to reflect on their ordeal.
This conversation was facilitated at San Francisco StoryCorps and edited by KALW's Rachel Wong.
