Why do We Fight to End the Mental Illness Stigma?

A Chapter from The Bipolar Writer Memoir

James had said his goodbyes on social media. Angela, her husband, and her son began to search the house to no avail. “I got really scared when we didn’t get an answer when we called. By this time many of the Explorer kids started arriving at my house. They had all seen what James had posted.”
