Recently, I came across an article with maybe the most impressive by-line I’ve ever seen:
By: U.S. Surgeon General, Vice Admiral (VADM) Vivek H. Murthy, M.D., M.B.A.
The article is entitled Raise. Your. Voice., and it’s a call to action. Murthy writes:
We cannot begin to address the challenges to achieving emotional well-being and good mental health until we get rid of the unacceptable stigma – be they cultural, religious or social – associated with mental illness and addiction.
The stigma is real. And, in my own small way, day by day, I am heeding Murthy’s call. Won’t you, too?
