A surprising number of works have been inspired by psychiatry – or more specifically, by the plight of those in need of psychiatric treatment. We’ll hear some of them. From Elodie Lauten, listen to selections from her "Two Cents Opera." There's also music from Peter Broderick's "Falling From Trees" and William Susman's "When Medicine Got It Wrong." Plus music by Peter Gabriel for the film "Birdy," along with music by Michael Nyman, and more.

Susman's piece gave me goosebumps - so evocative.
