About Dr. Kay Redfield Jamison: Author of An Unquiet Mind and Professor of Psychiatry at The Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, Kay Redfield Jamison is an international authority and researcher on mood disorders. Named a “Hero of Medicine" by TIME, she has unique insight into the world of mental illness.
Dr. Jamison went public with her own struggle with manic depression in a 1995 Washington Post article and subsequent New York Times bestseller, An Unquiet Mind: A Memoir of Moods and Madness. Since its release, she has become a trusted advocate for the millions who suffer from mental illness.
Jamison’s book Touched with Fire: Manic-Depressive Illness and the Artistic Temperament was awarded the Lewis Thomas Prize, which recognizes scientific works that reach a wider audience outside of the laboratory. Inspired by her work, director Paul Dalio dramatized his own battle with manic depression and bipolar disorder in Touched With Fire, a 2016 film starring Katie Holmes.
