My good friend, Julio Salazar, and two of his good friends will be running across Wisconsin to raise awareness of the need to defeat the stigma of mental health issues. I have significant pride in counting Julio as one of my friends. He works tirelessly to bring awareness to the problems faced by people with mental illness in their attempt to seek help and be accepted in our society. Last year, Julio completed a similar run across Minnesota. In the podcast today, we discuss the stigmatizing of mental health issues, out personal stories, and the upcoming run.
Information on the run can be found at http://www.defeatthestigmaproject.org.
