Awareness: Danger of a Single Story - Happy Groundhog Day


"In this video, author Chimamanda Adichie speaks to a TED.com conference about the danger of a single story representing an entire population. This an issue that we often face in mental health. The stories that make the news are always negative. The stories of the thousands upon thousands who manage their disorders and support their friends often go untold. Thankfully BringChange2Mind and other like-minded organizations are working to create a broader dialogue that is more representative of the mental health community."
