Changing misconceptions about mental illness

This article addresses the stigma that shadows those who live with a mental illness. Drawing on personal experience, I share my feeling of being utterly alone and having no idea why I felt the way I did. My struggle with mental illness is a main theme in my memoir Too High to Go to Woodstock, and I hope to add my own voice to that of others and bring the stigma out of the shadows.
