Jerry's Story (1 minutes, 7 seconds)

I have a mental illness. The mental illness has taken a heavy toll on my life. I worked as a lawyer for many years, and also as an engineer. And because of my mental illness I am completely disabled and unable to do any work at all. This is very disheartening. But I have learned to live with this illness. I have learned to adapt to it. And that is the most important thing I can relay to anyone that may be facing a similar situation. It is important to get help when you have these symptoms. I want to make sure that everyone understands how important it is to realize that people with mental illnesses need to get help. You can adapt to it, and live with it. And by doing so, you can live a more productive life.
