Mental Health Reform Now-In the White House

On Monday a good friend of mine accompanied Glenn Close to the White House. They, along with Bradley Cooper and many others, were all talking about the stigmata surrounding mental illness. Those that need mental health services or have a diagnosis of mental illness should not be afraid to discuss it.

I especially think this is true after after today’s tragedy in Santa Monica. We all should be talking about this topic, not just guns.

I guess not so long ago, it was much easier to stay quiet about things like mental illness. And I should know, as I was one of the quiet ones-but I’m not quiet anymore, those days are gone.
