BENEFITING: Mental Health America
EVENT DATE: Apr 27, 2014
Living with family members who suffer from mental illness changes everything. It carries with it an unfair and unwarranted stigma. Help (professional and personal) is very difficult to find. There are no friends or coworkers delivering casseroles and hugs. There's no set treatment plan or way to know how, if ever, the suffering will end. It's time for us to put it into perspective, educate one another, and destigmatize mental illness. It shouldn't be a dirty little secret. We and our mentally ill loved ones deserve better.
