Breaking the Stigma of Mental Illness

I had considered it important to address the stigma of mental illness and the stigma related to the treatment of these illnesses. Even those of us that suffer from various mental illnesses and in varying degrees find it hard not to judge ourselves and deny its severity. Some of us are still embarrassed to seek help for many reasons.

While throwing around ideas I came across a website that covers this very subject! Why recreate the wheel, right? So please take the time to visit this website and see what others are doing about fighting the unnecessary fear and shame. Maybe this will get everyone thinking and someday, you and I will no longer be embarrassed, ashamed or afraid to admit we have something going on and that does not make us different from anyone else.
