I found this Canadian video, along with an excellent discussion of how we need to start speaking openly about mental illness, on the Australian blog, 70 Plus and Still Kicking.
The video is called Removing the Stigma of Mental Illness and, although it was made in Canada, it works for all of us anywhere in the world. Please watch the video, and start talking about mental illness so that we can do our part in removing the stigma.
June posted some Australian mental health resources on her blog, and I will follow her example and give you a list of some for the U.S. (below).
Thanks to June, for starting the discussion and for inspiring this post.
