In Response to the WSJ Op-Ed: Mentally Ill, Drink a Smoothie

By Debbie Plotnick, MSS MLSP

Dear E. Fuller Torrey and Doris Fuller:

Early Saturday morning, I saw the op-ed that you both authored which ran in the Wall Street Journal. 

It pretty much was all I could think of over the weekend. At first I was very, very angry. This was because it hurt me personally, as a family member, as a mental health advocate, and as a social worker.
