May is Mental Illness Awareness Month.  This is a chance to talk to those who live with a loved one who is battling with mental illness.  We know that living with depression, bipolar disorder, or any other type of mental illness is emotionally and even physically draining for the person who is diagnosed.  But what about the impact that these disorders have on your spouse?  Parents?  Children?  How do loved ones cope with the ups and downs and meet their own emotional needs as well as supporting the loved one who is ill?  Don't miss this edition of Saturday Madness as J'Wan Yvette delves into a subject that many are afraid to talk about.
