World Mental Health day

In the spirit of world mental health day. I suffer from Bipolar 1 and Depression,and in my adult years was hospitalized 7 times… as a child I survived brain surgery, and a Nurse is who told me about faith, and religion…I started to walk by faith imperfectly, the night she prayed with me, and I woke up to a lobectomy that was for the purpose of removing my tumor which also stopped my epilepsy.  That was 23 years ago, and I lived to find a job and an education in mental health… silencing people with mental illness is taking away the voice of 1/4 of the American population, a population vastly diverse and rich in value and purpose. We  matter world, we all matter.
