The Only Shame in Mental Illness Is the Shameful Lack of Understanding

The mentally ill are too often feared and disparaged. There is an inability to believe that medication, proper supervision and some love can keep mentally ill people stable -- able to not only make it in this world, but contribute. I have read on Facebook that people want nothing but revenge against the Vince Li's of the world. Yes, I understand it's scary. But that's emotion speaking. Not facts on the ground.
