mental health is no longer a family secret. Now it is a medical emergency.
For far too long, our society has ignored, laughed at and downplayed the issues of mental health. Our pharmaceutical companies throw pills at the problem.
Our mental health institutions are privatized and costly. Our national response systems can barely handle the suicide crisis bubbling in our barracks.
Mental health is finally being pushed to the frontline of America's health conversation. In a sick and twisted turn of events, the recent horrific acts by white, young males in their own communities have sparked a national debate on mental health.
Did we wait too late?
