With mental health care increasingly mechanized, and families being responsible yet left out, Lisbeth Riis Cooper realized there had to be another way to help the mentally ill, and set about to create it. She runs both a live-in care facility and an international network for family support.
Lisbeth Riis Cooper is the founder of Riis Cooper, founder and chairwoman of the Mother Bear Community Action Network, and author of Mad in America; Jennifer Maurer is Managing Director of Mother Bear.
