  Voices of an Illness
Voices of an Illness is a radio documentary series which has provided millions with an extraordinary window on serious mental illness since the series premiere in 1992. The National Institute of Mental Health hailed the series as having "truly set new standards of creativity and scientific accuracy in broadcast journalism about mental illness." The Voices of an Illness series has been honored with 23 major broadcast journalism and mental health awards, including the George Foster Peabody Award for Excellence in Broadcasting, television and radio's highest honor. The series also received top honors from the National Institute of Mental Health, the American Psychiatric Association, the National Alliance for the Mentally Ill, the National Mental Health Association, the National Easter Seal Society and the American Medical Writers Association. This three-part series was created by LCM founder and president Bill Lichtenstein as a way of relating his own experience following his diagnosis with, and recovery from, manic depression.
