MELANIE BIRD

Jean Smart A nurturing, demanding therapist with a sharp mind and unconventional methods. Ms. Bird, as she’s known to those closest to her, has made the compassionate care of those society deems to be “the other” her life’s work — a mission she’s willing to go to extremes to protect.A nurturing, demanding therapist with a sharp mind and unconventional methods.

AMY HALLER

Katie Aselton David’s older sister, Amy saw firsthand the toll a mental illness such as David’s can take on a family, on parents and on a marriage.

PTONOMY WALLACE

Jeremie Harris A pragmatist with a dry sense of humour, Ptonomy is the kind of leader you’d follow out of your foxhole.

KERRY LOUDERMILK

Amber Midthunder Kerry is a mover, a doer; the kind of person that’s never satisfied with a green pasture. Instead, she wants to know what’s over that next hill. Always willing to tell you what she thinks, repercussions hold little sway over her because — at the end of the day — she knows she will always leave them behind.Kerry is a mover, a doer; the kind of person that’s never satisfied with a green pasture.

CARY LOUDERMILK

Bill Irwin A brilliant geneticist, Cary is Kerry’s counterweight; a scalpel to her hammer.
