This from the ABA Journal's report on the news:
Saks recalled in an interview with the Washington Post that, after her first psychotic episode at the age of 18, she was told she would never be able to live and work on her own. She told of an episode at Yale Law School when classmates found her singing on a rooftop outside the law library. "I thought there were beings in the sky controlling my brain," she said. Saks told the Associated Press she plans to use the money to continue educating people about the lives of people with mental illness. ''I want to make a difference in how people see schizophrenia,'' Saks said. She is working on a second book about high functioning people with schizophrenia.
Congratulations to Dean Saks.
