Stop blaming and start helping those with mental illness

John Oliver said it best. I dare you to watch this entire 11 minute video from his show last week. It just might enlighten you to the truth about how mental illness is treated in America and what needs to happen to improve this dire situation.

  1. Wasn’t available in my country but I found an alternative. Fantastic stuff. I’m glad these people are getting backlash now. I don’t think it will be long before calling someone “crazy” is as socially unacceptable as calling a black person “n*gger”

  2. John Oliver is a godsend. I started to cry after hearing this. I hope more people listen to what he has to say. I’ve been saying for so long too much attention is paid to extreme situations that don’t represent the mental health problems in America, and while those extreme situations deserve their due, the balance of those left living without the basic support they need to live productive lives is heartbreaking. The damage done to people who are mentally ill and incarcerated is horrific. Thank you for sharing this.

  3. Mental illness is the last illness on anyone agenda
    They rather talk about cancer
    The common cold
    Or vaccination
    That you should not get
    Mental illness is that ugly dis-ease
    That shouldn’t be allow to exist
    As always Sheldon
