"I was 24 years old when my roommate and close friend developed, seemingly out of nowhere, schizophrenia. I'm so thankful for the support network we had around us that helped me make sense of what was happening. I never expected to be confronted with mental illness in such a personal and devastating way. I slept on the floor in her room for the first week, took her to see a counselor, and eventually helped her enter a psychiatric hospital for initial observation and care. Having known her before and after the onset has completely changed the way I view people with mental illness - it can happen to anyone, by no fault of their own. Every time I see the BC2M commercials I feel grateful and relieved that people are working to change the stigma against people like my friend. Thank you." ("Claire")
