Episode Summary

EDIT
Mistaken Identity
AIRED:
Horizon presents a documentary about Multiple Personality Disorder (MPD) where in the 1980's, it suddenly became the talk of the town. Tens of thousands of Americans were diagnosed with an illness that was previously unheard of. A trigger for this sudden epidemic was the release of a film, "Sybil". Telling the dramatic story of a woman diagnosed with Multiple Personality Disorder, the film was shown across America making Sybil a household name.

Now, Sybil's original diagnosis is being challenged. The psychiatric community is divided and people are asking whether MPD exists at all.
