I happened upon this, and thought it was important to our national discussion.
Why do more people have to die, because mental illness is still such a stigma? Even in 2015? Why do we lose brilliant comedians like Robin Williams, now gone a year, because he couldn't tell us what he was feeling? Why do we sell guns in so many venues? And then those guns get resold, and they end up in the hands of people who are either criminals and likely to kill someone else. Or individuals with a mental illness, who are likely to kill themselves. What does it take to wake up the people in this country that we are dealing with a national crisis? And it is constantly being shoved aside to take care of more "suitable social issues." How many people have to suffer in silence, because no one will understand? Note: Over at The Women's Room, Contributor Laura Walker has written about her own family dealing with the stark reality of mental illness.
