How We Treat Mental Illness As a Society

How We Treat Mental Illness As a Society

What if, as a society, we treated mental illness like we treat cancer?  In our culture we flood the lives of cancer patients, survivors, and families with help, money, races, ribbons, and fundraisers. After a young adult in my circle took her own life, I had a brief, guilty thought,” wonder if a casserole could have helped her?” It had helped me during my cancer. Why should mental illness be any different?
