Every day all around us, people are living with mental illness. Either they carry a diagnosis that may forever alter their lives, or they are a family member or friend caring for their loved one. Our local, state, and national leaders need to hear from all of us, mental health consumers, friends, family members, and anyone else who values a mentally healthy community and a wants improved care for those living with mental illness. If more of us speak up, we can effect change.
