Thanks to my friend Jeff for sending me this story from the Chronicle of Higher Education about Mine Ener, the Villanova professor who suffered from postpartum psychosis and ended up killing her baby and herself. It’s a very balanced story, which I appreciate. And it’s also one that must be read, as it demonstrates yet again what can happen to women who don’t get the right treatment. There is no one single person at fault for what happened. There were simply so many missed opportunities to educate her and those around her, and to care for her in a way that could have prevented the horrible tragedy that ensued.
