Fears and stigmas deter many people from seeking help with mental health problems. A public television documentary is working to help counter that. Bruce Robinson spoke with some of the people who made it.

Among the vignettes featured in A New State of Mind, says producer Stephanie Locher, are two contrasting stories of returning war veterans.

A New State of Mind, Ending the Stigma of Mental Illness will be shown on KRCB-TV  on Monday, May 12 at 9 pm. Watch the trailer for the program below.
