GET PSYCHED, DISCOVERY LIFE PREMIERES ITS EIGHTH ANNUAL "PSYCH WEEK" NEXT MONDAY
(Silver Spring, MD) - Delving into the mysteries of the mind, Discovery Life will premiere its 8th annual PSYCH WEEK programming event next week in conjunction with Mental Health Awareness Month. Kicking off on Monday, May 29 at 8/7c with BORN SCHRIZOPHRENIC: JANI'S NEXT CHAPTER, viewers will also get to check in with the Schofield family during the world premiere of BORN SCHIZOPHRENIC: BIG CHANGES at 9/8c. The exhilarating first night of PSYCH WEEK doesn't end there, with the North American premiere of THE BOY WITH NO BRAIN at 10/9c, a one-hour special following Noah Wall who was born with less than two percent of a brain. Doctors didn't believe he would survive but three years later Noah is thriving, causing many to question... how?
More than one in four Americans meet the criteria for having a mental illness, but we rarely see or hear about it. PSYCH WEEK will once again shed light on individuals dealing with a spectrum of afflictions and addictions in hopes of defusing preexisting taboos and raising awareness for mental health, while also providing the audience with information and resources to help improve their own lives.
From Monday, May 29th through Friday, June 2nd PSYCH WEEK will air programming that brings these conversations to the forefront with titles including OCD HOSPITAL, I'M PREGNANT & HAVE A MENTAL DISORDER, KIDS WITH TOURETTE'S and popular series HOARDING: BURIED ALIVE.
