Brendan Murphy on why atheists handle mental illness better

Brendan Murphy is a growing force in speaking about mental illness.  Here’s his talk from the Secular Student Alliance Annual Conference this summer.

I’ve been 13 months in good shape since my last down period.  In the interest of honoring my promise to write about my own struggles, I will divulge I have not been well the last few days.  This weekend I was very close to self-admitting myself.

I’m slightly better now and taking all the precautionary steps I need.  I may be in and out over the next few weeks though.
