Dear Rhea,

Your write with honesty & vulnerability about a complex & tough issue — thank you so much for that! Mental health struggles should not be swept under a convenient, closest rug. There should be as much stigma about depression, schizophrenia & bipolar disorder as about asthma & cancer. And the first step is, & always should be, open communication. Good on you for writing about this!
