Mind Matters

If you look at the graphic above, you can see that a lot of things encompass Mental Health.  I’ve written about Mental Health before, particularly Depression, since I have had personal experience in this.

I usually watch CBS Sunday Morning on Sundays.  I woke up later than usual and missed a great deal of it, but happened to catch a piece that actress Glen Close was doing about Mental Health.  She has had personal experience with it as well because it runs in her family.  This is a link that will give you the highlights on the entire show’s broadcast.  There are some wonderful links included in the article that you should check out and a video of Glen Close’s interview.

HERE is a link to the foundation that Glen Close co-founded, Bring Change to Mind.  This is a Wonderful site with a TON of information.  She talks about Ending the Stimga of Mental Illness, how to talk to people about it and a lot more information.  Please be sure to take a few minutes to have a look!

Depression          Schizophrenia      Suicide     Dementia      Self Harm      Postpartum       Grief      Stigma     Bipolar      Stress      Therapy       Drugs       

The list above are things that I have either experienced or have had it personally effect my family.  I’m betting I’m not alone.  It’s ok to talk about it folks.  End the Stigma.

Mental illness is called what it is for a Reason.  It’s an ILLNESS.
