I came across this clip this morning. It is amazing. Like, really one of the best commentaries on mental health I have ever seen. EVER.
It’s funny, and sad, and snarky, and entertaining, and enlightening – and very informative. It pretty much sums up the mental health care system in the US in the last 100 years.
These days, 11 minutes is a long time to devote to a video, but I highly recommend watching this one from start to finish. It’s a little uncomfortable to watch at times, but i think that’s a good thing. We need to be challenged in the way we think and talk about mental illness and treatment. Who knew John Oliver would be the one who would challenge us?
