    I just caught the tail end of an ad on tv about mental illness and being a friend to someone with it. Has anyone seen this? I thought it was a great idea- maybe this is more effective than mental illness awareness in some ways. I don't watch much tv- the news mostly- and am amazed when I see something on it that I think people really need to see, but this was one of those times.... I hope they keep it up!!

    I've heard one \like it on the radio. Two people talking, one says they were diagnosis'ed with BiPolar (BP), then the announcers comes in and says something about treatment, medications, and FRIENDS are what she needs to recover. Good ad.

    I've seen it. And it's an excellent ad. I certainly hope they keep it up.
