No Kidding, Me Too

Celebrity Joey Pantoliano is making huge inroads in breaking down the stigma of mental illness though his non-profit foundation No Kidding, Me Too. He has created a documentary DVD, now available on Amazon.com,  that explores of lives of six people struggling with mental illness. Proceeds go to the foundation to further reduce the shame and silence around diseases that affect one out of every four  U.S. adults.

It’s hard enough to have a mental illness, but when you are afraid to talk about it, you become more isolated and less apt to recover. Joey speaks frankly about his bouts with depression and encourages everyone to start sharing their experiences so that mental illness comes out of the shadows.
