Special Guest: Beth Alison Maloney is the de facto national attorney advocate and a pioneer for the recognition and treatment of immune-mediated psychiatric disorders, a voluntary role she assumed after her son suffered severe mental illness as a result of an undiagnosed strep infection. Harnessing her skills and contacts gained from working in the entertainment industry, she pushed recognition of his disorder forward starting with the publication of her memoir Saving Sammy. Sold to Random House in a bidding war, it propelled the disorder to national attention when she appeared on the Today Show with her fully recovered son Sammy. Seeking to further empower parents, she wrote Childhood Interrupted (2013). In 2015, she was named by the Wall Street Journal in “5 Things to Know About PANS.” Ms. Maloney’s media appearances and interviews include the Today Show, The Doctors, Mystery Diagnosis, W5, the Glenn Beck Show, Fox News LA, Good Morning LA, 207, AM Northwest, Fox Q13 Seattle, GMA Health, the Bonnie Hunt Show, Sirius XM’s Doctor Radio, various Public Radio stations, internet and podcast programs, multiple articles in print and online including The Boston Globe. Her work as a catalyst for change in this area of medicine is inspiring.
