Letters To The Editor - All can be afflicted with mental illness


I appreciated E. Kirsten Peters' great article about bi-polar disorder in the U-B's Walla Walla Valley Weekly. Not only the rich and famous can be afflicted with mental illness of all kinds, but so can the everyday person.

National Alliance for the Mentally Ill is an organization devoted to reducing the stigma of mental illness and education about it.

We have a free 12 week course addressing the different mental illnesses, the medicines used to treat them and how to live with a person with a mental illness.

This free course starts Tuesday at 6 p.m. at the Jonathan M. Wainwright Memorial VA Medical Center, Bldg. 69, Room 208. Participants will be furnished with a notebook full of useful information about mental illness.
