Actress 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.
