    There is a huge pathology that is emerging amongst our men and women in the public eye which is only being highlights a major issue that the mainstream media (including radio, TV and some popular online blogs) is NOT really tackling. May is Mental Health Awareness Month and I find it ironic how I don’t hear ANY mention of it except on the advocate organizations like NAMI and Mental Health America. There IS a connection but are WE connecting those dots? #TolerantTuesday
