Respect Black: Mental Illness

Too many black people tend to turn a blind eye and a deaf ear to the very real problem of mental illness within the Black community.  I know from personal experience, the complete havoc and trauma that can be inflicted on the lives of the person suffering from the disorder and the people that love them.  Even after diagnosis there can be so much to deal with because many times there has been so much damage done emotionally that it takes a very long time to get back to a point where they and you can begin again.   I applaud Brandon Marshall for addressing this issue and I hope that his coming forward with his personal story helps those that are suffering in silence.
