Dangerous! (A Tiny Blog)

Contrary to what the media seems to want to say, today, not everyone with depression is dangerous enough to fly planes into mountains, or something similar!
I think the media coverage of this has been insensitive, and could be increasing stigma of mental illness, rather than help end it.
One in every five people, has some form of mental illness.
We have treatment,live our lives, and don't harm anyone.
I just wish they would put things in perspective, but they haven't, and I think THAT is dangerous!
