October 10, 2012
Rockford Register Star reporter Melissa Westphal covered the rally held Monday to kick off Mental Illness Awareness Week:
“Stories of mental illness came out in poetry, in song, in story.
A mother spoke about her son’s struggles with schizophrenia. Another woman updated the crowd of 75 about overcoming suicidal ideations — all in the name of changing lives and changing attitudes.”
