Awesome anti-stigma video

I found this video quite by accident on Youtube, and thought it was well worth sharing here.  It counters myths with facts and offers a very friendly presentation to aid in breaking through some of the stigma surrounding mental illness.

Just click on the link below to check it out.

A thank you message

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3GUHnoz2xFI&feature=player_embedded

I want to let you know that while the above link is a video of President Obama thanking people for their efforts in encouraging people to vote. I don’t want anyone to feel like I am trying to push my views on anyone else by posting this.  I felt the message is one that no matter what party you are affiliated with, it would be possible to come away from listening to it feeling like there was something for you in it.  Personally I felt good about the message and to me I felt like even though it was a general message to the country, it was like I got a little pat on the back for my small efforts in encouraging folks to register to vote and actually go out and be heard by casting their vote.

If you want to watch the video that’s fine, but if not that’s fine as well …. it is my hope that folks will not come back and accuse me of pushing a political view her, because that isn’t my purpose.  I simply felt it was a good message worth posting about and embodies much of what I’m beginning to do with regards to encouraging others to vote and try to get involved in the political process in any way they are able to supporting the party of each individuals’ choice.
