Author James FitzGerald used his writing as a way to start counter-acting years of silence and stigma in his family. Having lost his grandfather to suicide, and almost losing his father to it as well, he broke the cycle for himself by facing the mental illness in his family and telling his story. He joins Allison to talk about how silence and shame only add to the pain, and how he learned to speak up and take care of himself.
