Cincy Story Tellers, a speaking series by the Cincinnati Enquirer, will discuss the topic of “Living and Dying” and will feature the Mount’s associate professor of psychology, Dr. Tracy McDonough.  The free event will be held on Wednesday, May 4 at 7 p.m. at The Phoenix in downtown Cincinnati, and will also feature former Cincinnati Bengal Ickey Woods, Prerna Gandhi, Barbara Lynch, Christina and Bradley Martin and Sean Tierney.

McDonough and colleague Dr. Lynda Crane, professor emeritus at the Mount, are collecting stories for the Schizophrenia Oral History Project, which is a unique initiative to record and transcribe the histories of people who have schizophrenia.

The Schizophrenia Oral History Project has received national recognition with placement in the New York Times and USA Today, among others. McDonough continues the project with the help of a small grant and a desire to turn this into a unique educational experience for Mount psychology students.
