Today I am talking about the 60 million Americans who suffer from a severe mental illness, and who are going untreated.  My friend, Melissa, who has asked that I only use her first name, joins me for a raw discussion about her own struggles with mental illness, her suicide attempts, and her rise to recovery.  Melissa, now 29, has suffered with these demons since she was in 8th grade, and tells her story in a N.Y. Times article entitled, "A Guide In The Darkness."

Melissa is now a freelance Mental Health Care Professional/Advocate, helping to raise awareness, and empower others through her own experience.
