Bringing Change 2 Mind

Glenn CloseActress Glenn Glose has dedicated herself to fighting the fear of people with mental illness.  You may have seen the commercials running recently with her sister and nephew, both of whom have been battling mental illnesses.  She founded Bring Change 2 Mind, a national organization working to end the discrimination surrounding mental illness through a national anti-stigma campaign.

Mental illnesses are treatable through medication and therapy.  Sadly, it is often due to the stigma associated with mental illnesses that those who are battling with mental illnesses suffer in silence.  Yet it is estimated that 1 in every 6 adults lives with a brain-related illness such as depression, bipolar disorder, PTSD or schizophrenia.

 To learn more about Bring Change 2 Mind, to get informed about mental illnesses, to share your own story or to get involved with the organization, go to: http://bringchange2mind.org/.  You can also follow them on Twitter @BC2M and on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/BringChange2Mind.

I hope you are having an absolutely fabulous week!  Link on up:

  1. Dear Jessica
    Although I am saddened by the fact that Glen’s sister and nephew battles mental diseases, I am glad to see how she has become a spokeswoman for this illness. This is a hard road to walk alone and as you have said, many people suffer in silence, before they are ridiculed!
    Bless you
    Mia
