My name is Missy Case & I am a 38 year old woman from Illinois. I have been on disability for 6 years. My disability is related to serious mental illnesses.
The reason that I am marching is for everyone who lives with serious mental illness everyday. Whether or not they are on disability & regardless of their diagnosis, those of us struggling with mental illness need to stand together to end the stigma associated with mental illnesses. I also stand with those who stand to lose their mental health care if the ACA is indeed repealed.
