Despite recent efforts to destigmatize mental illness, it’s still not something everyone feels free to discuss. Why is that? And what effect does America’s health care system have on how mental health is treated? Rachel Aviv, author of “Strangers to Ourselves,” and Daniel Bergner, author of “The Mind and the Moon,” have been thinking about these questions. Moderated by Bethanne Patrick.
