"Normal's Overrated" ~ House & N.A.M.I Take On Stigma
Fox's mega-hit drama House has taken up residence with the National Alliance of Mental Illness to address the stigma of mental illness. The show is selling t-shirts with the slogan Normal's Overrated - with all benefits going NAMI. I believe, if my Internet researching is correct, that the House T-Shirt Project has netted over $300,000.000 so far.
Laurie, a truly dynamic individual, has been quite open about his clinical depression. It's always great when a high profile person can help educate and debunk mental health issues. So, kudos to Mr. Laurie, everyone at Fox and N.A.M.I.
