USA TO­DAY OPINION

USA TODAY International Edition - - NEWS | OPINION -

Men­tal health is just as im­por­tant as phys­i­cal health, but for the most part it is ig­nored. When peo­ple seek ther­apy, they are of­ten shunned by oth­ers who seem to think that de­pres­sion or anx­i­ety is con­ta­gious. Or they are told to “deal with it.” Wil­liam Travis

I sup­pose a per­son’s true wealth is mea­sured by the qual­ity of care, level of com­mit­ment and fierce ded­i­ca­tion from those who sur­round you. All the money in the world wasn’t a fac­tor with Kate Spade, and all the “suc­cess” in the world wasn’t enough for An­thony Bour­dain. De­spair is like a slow-act­ing poi­son, and if you don’t find an an­ti­dote, it can be deadly. Michael An­thony Shea
