The furor over the Virginia Tech shootings has already begun to die down, but mental illness will not go away. I venture to say that all of us are affected, even if we are not aware we are affected.
I have decided to join this year's NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) Walk. Any support would be appreciated. Go here to make an online donation.
I know that there are a lot of good causes to go around, and that you can't donate to them all. But to me, this year, this one is special because with more awareness and more help, maybe 32 intelligent, productive people would be in class today and another would be getting the treatment he had needed for so long.
