Could COVID-19 Finally Destigmatize Mental Illness?
There is a research model going around that suggests as many as 150,000 additional people could die from mental health-related outcomes of COVID-19.

But what if I took an alternative stance, and told you that—though absolutely no one would wish a pandemic on anyone— this is actually what mental health needed to stop being stigmatized and start being valued? I’m not ...
