Mental illness in America has been that subject that many have shied away from. More and more as time goes by, it is quite evident that something is terribly wrong with our present system of treating those who suffer mentally as many are misdiagnosed or sent to prison because of the troubles that they have gotten into in their brushes with the law. Afterward, many are highly sedated and medicated as though this will be a cure for them but it's more about "getting them out of our hair" if the truth be told.
On the other hand, many of us who are silently suffering sometimes feel that there is a stigma that will label us as "crazy" or something wrong with us if we sought treatment for depression or thought of hopelessness, worthlessness and suicide.
Many families will distance themselves from getting help and treatment for those who deserve it as they to are human beings but too many families seem to treat that one as a blight on the perfect picture of family life.
When family gatherings are underway, a great many persons who suffer from mental illness are not included and placed somewhere where they are not seen, hence the title of this show: Mental Illness In America: That Dreaded Secret In Our Attics.
What we fail to realize is that those who suffer from mental illness are people to, they have feelings and they are not as aloof as one might think because their feelings can be hurt too. We need to stop alienating our family and friends who need help and the only way to do this is through educating the masses about it and letting them know that there is nothing wrong with needed counsel or asking for help when the going gets tough.
Discussion and acknowledgment are the first steps to healing the wounds and that is what we surely will do on tonights show!
