Caring Lessons / WOW Blog Tour – Stop #12 – Changing Minds about Mental Ilness

“Changing Minds about Mental Illness” is a topic close to my heart. For a few reasons why, read my guest post on this tour’s site today. Also, please read this short essay to find out what you can do to help individuals living with mental illness and their families.

If  you’re a writer and interested in getting your book reviewed, “Mash” has a lot of information about book reviewers too. Plus she has a giveaway copy of my career memoir Caring Lessons: A Nursing Professor’s Journey of Faith and Self.

Have a blessed Easter. As you dye your Easter eggs, remember the real meaning of Easter!

    Your guest post was well done. Great to show ways one can make a difference in dealing with mental illness. I think we are beginning to understand that mental illness needs to be treated like any other sickness. But we still have a long way to go. You are doing a public service to promote that process.

      We do still have a long way before everyone will set aside old myths and understand that physical changes occur in the brain in mental illness. Thanks for your affirmation.
