Mental illness isn't some distant boogeyman, but present in our friends and families. Though like a boogeyman, it often hides where we don't care to look; and this is where problems begin. If we begin to share a positive message about mental illness with teens, and provide proper support in their already challenging teen years, we can begin to make a difference in their futures. There is no future more important to protect, than the future of those who will one day be our leaders, our nurses, and our repairmen. Cast away the taboos that surround mental illness, and we can one day work fluently with each other on such intimate issues. If you have any change to spare, consider donating to this cause! I've set a personal goal of $250-- let's break it!
