Cityscape: Glenn Close and Family Battle Stigma of Mental Illness

by George Bodarky, Morlene Chin, Julie Clark

Actress Glenn Close co-founded an organization to fight the stigma associated with mental illness.

Mental illness is a topic a lot of us are reluctant to talk about. That’s due in large part to the many misconceptions about mental illness, which can lead to a wide variety of problems, from discrimination at work to difficulty finding housing.

Coming up in June, WFUV's Strike a Chord campaign will turn its attention to helping to combat the stigma of mental illness.  We're getting a jump start on that campaign on this week's Cityscape as we sit down with actress Glenn Close and members of her family who are living with mental illness. Close co-founded an organization called Bring Change 2 Mind, which works to address misconceptions about mental illness.
