No Kidding, Me Too!

Posted: 06:45 PM ET

May is National Mental Health Awareness Month and The Sopranos’ Joey Pantoliano wants you to talk about your brain!

Pantoliano directed a new documentary, titled “No Kidding, Me Too,” about fighting the stigma and shame associated with mental illnesses (which he calls a "dis-ease").  The idea behind the documentary is that everyone knows someone who either lives with mental illness or is affected by it.  "No Kidding, Me Too" is available now through CreateSpace, Amazon.com’s DVD-on-demand service.

Tomorrow on the LKL Blog, Joey will talk to us about mental illness, his own battle with depression and why he thinks more American’s need to talk about it all.

Here’s his organization’s public service announcement:

Feeling bad about one self is not a mental illness, on the contrary..

Example: So many Hollywood actresses medicating.. Self medicating all because they feel bad about themselves.
Question is.. Would they be sane if they didn’t?

Got a lot more to say, but if you feel that it’s appropriate to leach blood to cure mental illness…
