Many people with mental illness have to wake up every day and make the choice to live, and we don’t celebrate them. We don’t celebrate that choice. We think it’s just like waking up, ‘What’s the big deal? You got to get up this morning? Woohoo, good for you.’ For some people, for a lot of people, for too many people, that’s a heroic choice.”
I was on local station KARE 11 earlier today to discuss mental illness.
