"There is a stigma on Mental Illness and most cannot truly understand unless they've been through it themselves or have had training in that area. To me, mental illness is not a death sentence. For some, its a path of enlightenment. A journey in which you find out who you truly are, what you were meant to be, and the truths and wisdom about life."
-Carl Thomas (Donor)
