In its May issue, Women’s Health Magazine poses the question: Which of these women have a mental illness?
The answer, is, of course, all of them.
There are many women featured, including Women’s Health Editor-in-Chief Amy Keller Laird, who has OCD. CEO of Stigma Fighters and our VP of Marketing Sarah Fader speaks about anxiety; Actress Laura Oceane shines through her Borderline Personality Disorder; Founder and Editor-in-Chief of The OCH Literary Society Allie Burke reminisces about the worst thing ever said to her about her Schizophrenia, “I get trolled pretty hard on social media. People say, ‘Oh my god, you’re schizophrenic, why don’t you go kill yourself?” Allie remembers the comment from someone she didn’t know on Facebook, when someone claimed that psychiatric medication was a government conspiracy and mental illnesses didn’t actually exist.
