    I produced this profile of Patrick Kennedy in 2011, shortly after he left Congress and was helping to launch a major new initiative promoting research on the brain. In this 42-minute documentary, Kennedy talks with CNN Chief Medical Correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta about his own struggles with addiction and depression, and about his hopes for the research project that he calls a "moonshot" for the next generation. To me, the question of how we view addiction - as a personal failing, a brain disease, both or something else entirely - is the most interesting aspect of the conversation. There's a companion text piece here: http://www.cnn.com/2011/HEALTH/05/20/patrick.kennedy.brain.research/

    • Parking Craters: Scourge of American Downtowns

      Angie Schmitt, editor of Streetsblog USA and originator of the "parking crater" term is blunt, "a parking crater is a depression in the middle of an urban area formed by the absence of buildings". Whether parking craters are formed due to the meteors of 20th Century bad policy, a city's erosion of manufacturing or housing, the abandoned scraps leftover by freeway building or just plain unfortunate luck, they absolutely destroy sections of city downtowns and make the environment more inhospitable and unattractive for livable streets. In these areas there is virtually no street life.or vitality. You'll find little greenery or open space. In hotter cities the heating of the asphalt and parked cars make the air oppressive. It's hell on earth. It is a parking crater. In this Streetfilm we get to talk to some advocates in Cleveland, Dallas, Hartford and Houston about the parking craters they've entered in Streetsblog's annual tournament (created in 2013) to talk about why their cities have such bad craters. Note: if this film is well received, we fully intend on doing a follow-up film looking at the flip side: cities who have changed their fortunes and adopted better parking policies to make their cities more viable and progressive.

                    Mental illness affects everyone. Nearly 60 million Americans experience a mental health condition every year. Regardless of race, age, religion or economic status, mental illness impacts the lives of at least one in four adults and one in 10 children across the United States.

Because mental illness devastates the lives of so many Americans, NAMI works every day to save every life.
