Last week, I experienced something I never thought I would, my cousin committed suicide. He was a bright young adult with so much to live for. After learning of his death, I found out he had been diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder many years ago. He was very private about this, never talked about it and never allowed his mom tell anyone.
His death brought up so many questions. Why are people afraid to talk about having a mental illness? Why is it so taboo to bring up the topic? Why do people suffer in silence? Most importantly, what can we do to help?
I decided something needed to be done and who better to help make an impact than this fandom. After enlisting Meagan’s help, Fandom for Mental Health was born.
