There is one problem in society today that knows no boundaries, affecting rich and poor, conservative and liberal, young and old, all alike. It doesn't discriminate based on ethnicity or nationality or any other method by which we usually divide ourselves.We all can suffer from mental illness. In fact, one in five of us will experience a mental health issue in our lifetime. But for such a widespread problem, there is a strange silence that accompanies the problem. It isn't talked about, or if it is, only in hushed tones, or laughed off as a punchline to a joke. Likewise, too often those actively searching for mental health medical care often find their calls for help met with silence too — a lack of funding, or insurance support, or adequate laws to blame. So it's time to talk about it, and really look at mental health in our communities. What's working? What's not? What can all of us do to make things better?
