Anderson takes part in an experiment to help understand how people live with mental illness

Mental illness often makes headlines after tragedies like last week's deadly shooting at Seattle Pacific University. A number of mental illnesses, including schizophrenia, can cause auditory hallucinations. It's important to know that only a tiny number of people who hear voices engage in violence of any kind. Anderson took part in an experiment to help people understand how others live with mental illness experience everyday. Anderson wore headphones that simulate hearing voices while trying to do everything from puzzles to simply interacting with people in the street.

Clinical psychologist Pat Deegan designed the experiment. She was diagnosed with schizophrenia as a teenager.

Seattle's mayor: What inspired me is the student who jumped in there  

The shooter who opened fire Thursday at Seattle Pacific University killed one young man and injured several others. We are learning more about the hero who tackled the suspect and doused him with pepper spray. John Meis is a student building monitor and his actions ended what may have otherwise been a far deadlier tragedy. Seattle's Mayor Ed Murray told Anderson that his city had been in mourning since Sunday, when two men were shot to death in another incident.

Kyung Lah has the latest information on how Jonathan Mies stopped the Seattle Pacific shooting suspect.
