Letter: Partial truth

Dear Editor:

We need to listen to each other’s stories and do away with the stigma (of) mental illness  

That is a partial truth, may I complete it:

We need to listen to each other’s stories and do away with the stigma (of) mental illness in our minds.

So long as it holds residence in our minds it will affect us—and others—negatively.

Retired mental health editor
