    I wonder how much of this is due to the stigma that still surrounds mental illness. Funding it properly would draw attention to how widespread it is and force people to acknowledge how serious a problem it is.

    I know several people who have chosen to suffer in silence because they’re afraid it could have consequences for their career or even their friendships. They see it as safer to not seek therapy rather than explaining to their boss why they need to leave work a couple of hours early every Thursday. In very competitive work environments, some feel that admitting to mental health issues may put them at a disadvantage when a promotion is up for grabs. This wouldn’t be the case if they had cancer or heart problems.
