Your wondering what kind of group is this, so many outstanding people names who affected the world with their gifts of talents.

The answer is quite simple all these famous persons have been known to suffer from symptoms of Mental Illness.  Depression is the main disorder, suicide, substance abuse, the other illness.  Some were diagnosis with bi-polar disorder and even schizophrenia. There are thousands more high-profile people from all walks of life who we can add to the group, “you get the idea, the point that being presented”. “Mental Illness is here, these disorders are not going away. Behavioral Health problems are in the workplace, your home, your friend’s home, house of worship.”

Our Military has a major problem with veterans returning home, more suicides after deployment in the history of the military. After 9/11 our law enforcement has join the ranks, with personnel suffering from PTSD and Addictions disorder, depression from being medically ill. “Frankly its a real mess.” This population is part of the New Civil Rights Era. For their so big now, the question is how can we take care of this population? (support) Their protection laws are being violated daily. (ADA, HIPAA)

“I need your support, If you care and can understand the situation then comment. Their is much anxiety about guns and mental illness these days. “My friends, this is not the population conducting mass murder. Of course person/s who conduct “walk by killing”, shooting  anyone near his or her self is insane. These acts of violent outburst are not going  to stop in this country, for this style of action has become a sign of individual violent  protest.

What we all can do is, become more proactive to why, how can I, do something to help a person.  Taking time out to comprehend, cope with ones ego, this may bring a person around to seek professional counselling. We won’t know unless we try. Most of all we must make big business and all government accountable to the laws already available to protect the mentally ill.  The names in this posting represent greatness and pain, lets work together for less pain.

RIP my friend and advocate for Mental Health ,  Mr. Mike Wallace, CBS news, and 60 minutes.

  1. “WE made a start Monday towards making America proactive to Mental Health. The White House sponsored a conference on Mental Illness. The printed material has a good deal of information for people who need to know.”
