This show gives an intimate look at how a couple deals with relationship changes when one spouse has a mental illness. Stan shares the challenges of taking on the role of caretaker and protector. He discusses the process of walking the fine line between helping to care for his spouse without doing too much and engendering an unhealthy dependency. Susan share her frustrations with Stan's desire to "fix" her rather than just being present to her, and how the relationship evolves and changes as she moves into recovery. This video features excerpts from the documentary, "Shadow Voices: Finding Hope in Mental Illness", produced by Third Way Media.
