Summary
Only those who suffer from emotional illness fully comprehend the desperation that drives them to radical treatments such as psychosurgery. In this program, viewers get a sense of that desperation as three British patients explain how their particular disorders-manic depression, obsessive-compulsive behavior-have crippled their lives, and why they've chosen irreversible brain surgery as their last, best hope for a normal life. British doctors candidly discuss both the risk factors and low success rates-one out of three patients are actually helped, often only minimally
