In various television shows that are on currently, we see that mental illness and addiction are being glamorized. As if it is great to be suffering from active symptoms of either. Take the show Shameless for example. We see how far Frank will go to get his fix and what the family will go through to essentially survive without him. The truth of the matter is, mental illness and addiction is great at leaving the shell of the person you knew. I believe putting information about the diseases out there is obviously important but isn't there a better way? What are your thoughts?
