DISCOVERY FIT & HEALTH OFFERS AN INTIMATE LOOK INTO THE MYSTERIOUS MIND WITH ANNUAL PSYCH WEEK PROGRAMMING EVENT, ANCHORED BY THE PREMIERE OF "BORN SCHIZOPRHENIC: JANI AND BODHI'S JOURNEY" ON MAY 26

(Silver Spring, MD) - In conjunction with Mental Health Awareness Month in May, Discovery Fit & Health's fifth annual PSYCH WEEK, airing May 26-June 1, presents a week of mindful programming dedicated to individuals dealing with a spectrum of mental illnesses and brain disorders. Anchoring PSYCH WEEK is the next installment in a series of specials, Born Schizophrenic, chronicling the Schofield family. Jani Schofield, one of the youngest children ever diagnosed with schizophrenia, is making great strides with her illness and functioning much like a typical 11-year-old girl. But attention has now turned to her younger brother Bodhi, 6, and his own journey toward diagnosis, as his severe autism and intermittent explosive disorder leaves his parents begging for answers and battling daily to protect him from himself. The special follows Susan and Michael Schofield as they struggle through daily tasks and highlights the tremendous troubles and triumphs of raising two children with mental illness, all while keeping the only family they know together. BORN SCHIZOPHRENIC: JANI AND BODHI'S JOURNEY, premieres Monday, May 26 at 10/9c on Discovery Fit & Health.

"Discovery Fit & Health dives deep into the mysteries of the mind and focuses on the importance of mental health awareness with our annual PSYCH WEEK, as we solidify ourselves as the home for medical and health programming on television," said Jane Latman, general manager of Discovery Fit & Health. "The Schofields invite our viewers into their hearts and home to help educate others in BORN SCHIZOPHRENIC, a heart-wrenching and inspiring documentary about raising their two remarkable children."

In conjunction with PSYCH WEEK, Discovery Fit & Health is working with Bring Change 2 Mind (http://www.bringchange2mind.org/), the organization founded by actress Glenn Close that focuses on working to end the stigma and discrimination of mental illness. In an effort to perpetuate their message, DF&H will air PSAs for the organization and provide on-air messaging to viewers with information and resources to help defuse preexisting taboos on mental health and useful tips on how to improve their own lives.

In addition to the world premiere of BORN SCHIZOPHRENIC: JANI AND BODHI'S JOURNEY on May 26 at 10/9c, Discovery Fit & Health packs its primetime schedule full of premieres each night of the week with programming that helps raise awareness of mental health, such as network premieres of: 20/20: MYSTERIOUS MINDS and HOARDING: BURIED ALIVE as well as encore presentations of: THIS IS AUTISM; THE WOMAN WITH 15 PERSONALITIES; THE TOWN THAT CAUGHT TOURETTE'S; I'M PREGNANT AND... OCD; I'M PREGNANT AND... BIPOLAR; and MY STRANGE ADDICTION. Previously aired specials of BORN SCHIZOPHRENIC will air leading up to the premiere on May 26.
