Sanity and the loss of it


Sanity is something that we all take for granted and I sometimes think that sanity is lost on the sane. When my son lost his sanity, it was difficult to grasp that this had occurred, could have occurred, but it did and we all grieved for his loss.

When bizarre behavior once limited to adolescents, extreme weight loss, public temper tantrums and exhibitionism are splashed across the front pages of leading newspapers and glossy magazines, we now know that very often this behavior is the start of a mental illness.

If we could break the silence and get a program including mental illness into our school system, teachers might be able to identify the first signs in their students and guide them toward the a place where whey can get the help they so badly need.
