Another bright story to share

A nice story about Alicia Raimundo appeared in the Kitchener-Waterloo Record. She’s one of five Canadians chosen nationwide to be one of the 2012 Faces of Mental Illness.


Yet Raimundo said often people only talk about mental illness when something terrible hits the news, like a violent crime or celebrity suicide. But anyone can have a mental illness and often without showing any obvious signs.

“It’s a face that you won’t be able to pick out from a crowd … It can be anyone you know,” she said.

I love these stories and if you are interested you should head over to the Canadian Alliance on Mental Illness and Mental Health website.

Author’s note: I’m still crazy busy now rewriting my Master’s Project Report and other things, so I apologize in advance if my postage is erratic.


About Neil

I happen to have paranoid schizophrenia. But that is only a small part of who I am. I define me, not my illness. I always try and choose hope and choose to be a better person, though like all people, I have more than a few failures. Some have been rather spectacular.
