Glenn Close on mental illness: Say it loud

Pin It

Making the point that mental illness is a matter for all families, award-winning actress Glenn Close was joined by her sister Jessie and a nephew to give a joint public lecture at the Society for Neuroscience’s annual meeting, this year in San Diego. [see SfN video of the lecture]

One in six adults, one in four families, currently has a diagnosable mental illness, said Close, “and mine happens to be one of them.” After volunteering at Fountain House as a way to learn more about mental illness, she worked with the group to set up BringChange2Mind.org, a national anti-stigma campaign.
