DETROIT, July 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Mariel Hemingway comes from a long line of great, but troubled, souls‐‐where suicide was so common, that it had to be more than just coincidence. Until very recently, the tendency of depression, addiction and suicide to run in families was little understood. But in 2014, scientists identified the GENETIC BIOMARKER that unquestionably contributes to these kinds of mental illness.
MI Healthy Mind premieres its new season in an exclusive interview with Oscar-Nominated Actress, Author and Mental Health Advocate Mariel Hemingway this Sunday, July 24, 2016 at noon on WMYD - TV 20 Detroit.
