This is an incredible piece from CNN.com’s Wayne Drash.
This article really got to me. Having struggled with my own personal mental health issues, I can tell you that without my mother and father I may not be here today, and I don’t just mean in grad school, I mean in general. Parental support, understanding, and unfailing love is the key to success in life, but they are especially critical in dealing with mental illness.
I commend this mother, son, and family for standing up, putting themselves on display, and continuing to fight the stigma that accompanies mental illness.
