Actress Glenn Close advocates for mental health awareness in light of recent UCSB shooting

May 28, 2014

Who knew that in addition to being an award-winning actress, Glenn Close is also an advocate for mental health awareness?

Close spoke with Dr. Michael Aronoff yesterday on Doctor Radio’s Psychiatry Show about everything from her family’s history of mental illness to helping make college campuses a safer, stigma-free zone for students.

“What we are really succeeding at doing… is to start the conversation and to create the place where people can tell their stories because hearing someone’s story is the most powerful thing of all to changing people’s attitudes and behavior,” Close said of Bring Change to Mind, her organization dedicated to ending the stigma and discrimination surrounding mental illness.
