They were the perfect family, until illness took the children, one by one. Robert Kolker joins host Krys Boyd to talk about the Galvin family, which saw schizophrenia take over six of 12 kids – drawing interest from the National Institute of Mental Health. His book is called “Hidden Valley Road: Inside the Mind of an American Family.” This conversation is part of KERA’s mental health initiative, On Our Minds.
