I wish you a good and safe trip, Lisa. Moreover, I commend you again for being so bold and outspoken on mental health issues. I believe it’s only through open and honest communication that we can minimize and, ultimately, eradicate the stigma surrounding mental illness. Ending the stigma would encourage more people with mental health issues to seek the medical treatment and therapy they need — which would not only benefit them and their family/friends, but also society in general.

Thanks for all YOU do, Lisa. Your leadership on this issue is impressive and admirable!
