Our Family's Journey Through Mental Illness - Teresa Price; Kathryn Price Teresa Price is a native Austinite who received her Bachelor's and Master's Degrees in Engineering from the University of Texas at Austin in the mid-80s. She and her husband, whom she met in graduate school, moved to Maine in 1986. Along with having three children in the 1990's, they started their firm, Price Structural Engineers, in 1999. Teresa is on the Board of Directors of the Structural Engineers Association of Maine and acts as Treasurer of her church. She is also a member of NAMI Maine's Speakers Bureau and enjoys talking to different groups around the state. Each of her three children has been diagnosed with a mental illness. Katy Price is a college freshman attending Susquehanna University in Pennsylvania. She is majoring in photography and studying jazz piano. She was 12 when one brother was diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder and 13 when her other brother was diagnosed with severe bipolar disorder. She is the youngest presenter in NAMI Maine's Speakers Bureau and also a member of NAMI Maine's new Youth and Young Adult Council. She intends on advocating for mental illness and fighting stigma, and is preparing a photographic series to express her experience with anxiety and depression. Logan Price was a gifted student and athlete when he was diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder as a freshman biomedical engineering major at UT-Austin in 2010. His family back in Maine felt as if they'd fallen into an abyss when they heard the news. His sister and brother were so triggered by this situation, they developed mental illnesses of their own-an anxiety disorder and bipolar disorder, respectively. Logan's mother, Theresa, describes the family's six-year journey negotiating through their own emotions, Logan's needs, the mental health system, and efforts to educate the public about mental illness. Logan's sister, Katy, describes her experiences as a sibling living with a mentally ill brother, the stigma attached to her anxiety, her efforts to hide it, and the perspective of mental illness from the platform of high school student.
