Grad student Avery is in her final semester at Notre Dame and in just a few short weeks, she will earn her doctorate in Psychology and open her own practice. That's assuming she finishes her thesis, a study of the mechanics of mental illness and how science can change lives. Case after case, Avery becomes immersed in the lives of these patients, the day to day struggles of anxiety, depression, suicide, and medication. When one case hits close to home, Avery realizes that numbers only tell part of the story of mental illness.
