Millicent Monks was born into the legendary Carnegie
family, in which serious mental illness has affected four
generations of women. Mental illness has played a prominent and
overwhelming part in her life. Her search for answers led her to
Jungian analysis, meditation and sutras, which have helped her to
find a delicate peace amid the devastating mental illness in her
family. She shares her story in the hopes that it will help other
"If I can do something worthwhile to help people with children who are mentally ill," says Monks, "I would think that was something worth accomplishing in my life."
