Billionaire Ted Stanley is donating $650 million to the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard for researching and treating the genetic roots of mental illness. His son Jonathan was diagnosed as a young adult with bipolar disorder with psychosis. Although Jonathan’s illness is very treatable, Ted has met the parents of many other children with mental illness for whom no treatment works. Jonathan says he’s fine with the fact that his father is giving away most of what could be his inheritance. “All I can say is my family got it right” (NPR.org, July 22).
