Top TED Talks on Mental Illness

Again while we are all stuck at home during this coronavirus crisis, we have the chance to briefly delve into the most-cutting edge ideas on mental illness. Here are a list of some of my favourites (including some relating to the criminal justice system, and two of the best Talks - starting with a Talk by Elyn Saks who is a law professor with schizophrenia and ending with a Talk on the controversial Stanford Prison Experiment):
