At Hope for THIS Step we recognize how difficult it can be to speak out about substance abuse, self-medicating, suicidal thoughts, depression, etc. The deafening silence because of the stigma has been around for centuries.

I have not read this book and we are not getting into any politics here. However, it is good to see and hear someone who has been in society’s eye speak up. Yes, things were handled differently in generations past. Can anyone say that has worked well?
