I received an email from a student that attends High Tech High in San Diego, California. 45 students along with their two teachers are working on a project producing a documentary in regards to the gun violence in this country. It will also focus on the mental health issues that this country is facing and the stigma that sadly follows those affected with mental illness. I think this is an awesome thing they are doing. It makes me happy to see that they are interested in changing the way others view the severe issues this country faces. I feel it is always put in better perspective when it comes from the ones we least expect to be paying attention to the world are around them. Our youth...
I'm a mother with an agenda to save her son from the grips of his mental illness and stop stigma so that those who suffer in silence can seek help without fearing the worse. Join me on this roller coaster ride..you're no longer alone.
