Stigma and mental illness

The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) for years has been fighting the stigma that is associated with mental illness.

As a member of NAMI and a father who had a son with a mental illness, I feel that using the word CRAZIER in the titled and numerous times in the article was insensitive to the problem of mental illness.

However, I did find the article very interesting and informative.
