Let's talk about mental illness

Its been an interesting few weeks at work for me as I have encountered a few friends and family of clients who still don’t seem to believe that mental illness is real.  After all these years as a psychologist, I really do still find it astonishing that some people still seem to put depression and anxiety in the same category as unicorns and the tooth fairy.  So maybe this article will help get the message across – mental illness really is real, and we need to talk about it – openly.
