i am honored to be featured on StigmaFighters.com, a blog and mental health non-profit organization dedicated to helping real people living with mental illness. every day, Stigma Fighters’ blog includes writing by people who live with a variety of mental illnesses. by sharing our stories, we are helping to break down the stigma that accompanies depression, bipolar, anxiety and many other mental health issues.
i wrote about how difficult it has been for me to talk openly about my depression, and how i witnessed the same behavior in my father before he died by suicide. i talked about my desire for more openness because we deserve support and understanding when we are suffering from a mental illness. please take a minute and check out the article.
