Thriving with Mental Illness
As individuals raise their expectations about living as healthy a life as possible when diagnosed with mental illness, the goal of thriving emerges. PsychCentral.com has created a new interview series, Thriving With Mental Illness, to not only say individuals live successfully with mental illness, but to share how they do it. This first interview is with Elaina Martin, popular blogger of Being Beautifully Bipolar, but the conversation has relevance for any diagnosis.

While much of our agency's work is educational, another important aspect of our mission is legislative and public policy advocacy. As an agency, these issues are front-and-center for us all the time. The Half-Trillion-Dollar Depression from The New York Times clearly articulates why access to mental health services is so important across so many dimensions of our society.
