Sheila is the Author of "All The Things We Never Knew" and we will be discussing her book about her late husband's suicide, mental illness, and the fragile line between reality and madness. We will discuss the stigma around Mental Illness and Suicide, Mental Health Advocacy, and what needs to change in the healthcare system and in our attitudes to save lives around us. This is an important show about raising awareness that everyone should hear.
