Minnesota Psychiatry in the Mid-to-Late Twentieth Century Oral History Project - The project is a collection of interviews of psychiatrists throughout Minnesota done mostly in the 1970s by Dr. Marvin Sukov and by Drs. David Cline and Deane Manolis between 2009 and 2011. The interviews begin with recollections of the 1940s and 1950s and trace the progress of medicines, the perception of mental illness, and practice of psychiatrists in rural and urban Minnesota. The project includes a brief summary of the history of psychiatry in Minnesota and summaries of each interview. TRANSCRIPTS: 569 pages - Click here to see the MPS Collection.
Understanding Depression Series – The series on Depression and Suicide was originally produced in English, and recently translated into Spanish in order to assist Latinos in early detection of depressive symptoms that can lead to suicide. The stressful circumstances around immigration and deportation threats affect the Latino community in the USA. The viewing audience for the English language series found the personal stories of our guests helpful in recognizing the way a treatable illness like depression can begin to affect mood, personality, and the ability to study or to work. If not detected and treated effectively, the risk of suicide increases. The series offers viewers an opportunity to see and hear men and women talk about their experience with their own depression or that of a loved one. Understanding Depression Website.
