    It was great to read this article. I too have suffered with bipolar disorder, borderline personality, and ADD. I currently just been seeing a new psychiatrist and has helped me get on the right medicine. I’m feeling much better in a little over a month. I too went through a drinking addiction self medicating and not feeling right. I have overcome that also.

    Demi Lovato has inspired me to speak out to help get rid of the stigma. I’m going to be trained to be a speaker to bring our NAMI Ending the Silence program to high schoolers in NKY. Thank you so much for giving me the motivation to speak out about mental illness like you have.

    I think it’s fantastic to see celebrities opening up about addiction. It is important for more and more people to be open, and I believe seeing the stars and other Hollywood figures coming out about the impact of addiction has been huge.

    I think that acceptance and help are such crucial steps, it is great to see role models come out and admit they have an issue and hope to inspire so many others.
