Ironing the Irony Out of Mental Illness: A Response

By Wanda Lewis, Administrative Assistant, Sr., Office of Assistant Dean for Alumni Relations at LLUSPH This is a response to a post published yesterday entitled, "Mental Illness... Isn't it Ironic?" My hat goes off to Katie Freeland and all others who have found the courage to publicly share such an intimate part of their lives.

Mental Illness... Isn't it Ironic?

I’m going to start this by saying this is probably one of the most terrifying things I’ve done or will do. But it needs to be done. Robin Williams committed suicide yesterday. As soon as I found out (one of my best friends and my mom both texted me at the exact same time to tell me), I broke down crying. I’m thankful that I was alone at work and was able to do so in relative peace.
