Why aren't we asking the big questions? A Q&A with Ruby Wax
One in four people have some form of mental illness, and Ruby Wax wants to talk about it. Watch her TEDTalk, posted 10th October and inspired by her show Losing It, to start the conversation. One project she didn't get to mention onstage at TEDGlobal: This winter, Wax started up the Black Dog Tribe (http://www.
), an online network for people with mental illness to connect with each other.
So the TED Blog asked Ruby for more about the Black Dog, her next show, performing in mental institutions, and the big questions that we still can't talk about.
