A Year of Five on Fridays

Dear Readers,

From post-operative depression to the opioid epidemic to the wild nature of adolescence; from Peru to Geel to Nigeria; from living to 103 and dying of a broken heart, we have covered a lot of ground in our musings on mental health this year. Thank you for opening your minds and imaginations to make greater understanding of mental health and mental illness part of everyday life.
