State of Mind centres around New Haven Psychiatric Associates, a rambling Victorian house turned office building for a group of therapists, a newly minted lawyer and an eccentric office manager, all of whom have personal problems as interesting as those of their eclectic and offbeat patients and clients.
The series takes a unique perspective on sex, life, love, death, family and friends, incorporating complex personalities and an endless curiosity about human beings.
The ensemble series is led by Lili Taylor, who plays Ann, a brilliant psychiatrist who finds her life at a crossroads after she catches her husband, Phil, a fellow psychiatrist, having sex with their own couples counselor.
With her personal life suddenly crumbling, Ann begins to feel she needs all the help she can get from her colleagues — who both help and hinder her.
There is one season in the series, containing eight hour-long episodes
