If you’re free at 9:00 a.m. PST this Wednesday morning (Aug. 15), I invite you to listen to KQED's Forum show, where I will be a featured guest discussing the topic of MASS SHOOTINGS AND MENTAL ILLNESS: “Can anything be done to predict and prevent such violent acts, and what do we know about what causes people to commit them?” Also featured will be Dave Cullen, journalist and author of the book Columbine, and David Eagleman, director of the Initiative of Neuroscience and the Law at the Baylor College of Medicine. The guest host is Spencer Michaels of PBS NewsHour.
If you are not local to the San Francisco Bay Area, you can still listen live, by clicking HERE.

Thanks very much to those of you who listened and sent me feedback via email. I appreciate the support.
