Family Support in Mental Illness – Video


Supportive family and friends can help reduce a sense of stigma for someone with mental illness.This 5 minute video is part of NAMI‘s campaign to cut down the stigma around mental health. It is a first-person account that shows how one woman (Yashi Brown) experiences her family’s support during her difficult times. Her mother (Rebbie Jackson-Brown) and sister (Stacy) share their own views on being supportive. It is a good example of one family’s approach to support and reducing stigma.
