Treat mental illness; don’t stigmatize it

Thank you, Tribune, for your intelligent editorial about the proposed psychiatric faculty in Templeton. I grew weary of hearing the stigmatizing and misinformed statements from people opposed to the project. I particularly enjoyed the last comment about getting worried about the untreated neighbors.

People with mental health issues need medical care just as much as people with other health issues — and mental health is a health issue.
