On Saturday we marked the 50 year anniversary of an article that changed the way society talks about mental illness and led to the creation of Rethink Mental Illness.
John Pringle wrote honestly about his experience of caring for his son who had been diagnosed with schizophrenia. The article resonated with people at the time, and continues to do so today. Thank you to all of you who have been in touch to share your own stories and experiences.
On our website, you can read Andrew's blog describing younger brother John who was diagnosed with schizophrenia in 1987.
