Erin’s Story

I am a member of National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) and receive daily e-mail updates from them.   I’d like to share this heartfelt YouTube video that I received from them today, as it clearly portrays the raw emotions that occur when someone is faced with a mental illness.  Erin does a great job of sharing not only what the experience has been like for her, but also sharing the hope that stems from reaching out for and receiving help.    It provides a clear illustration that bipolar and schizophrenia are diseases that deserve to be taken more seriously.  While advances have been made in the treatment of these illnesses, much more research is needed to search for cures.
