Howie Mandel Pushes for Mental Health ReformOctober 9, 2017
We saw this video on Ellen today, in reaction to the recent Las Vegas shooting tragedy.
Howie makes several great points in this short interview, and provides a fresh perspective on events like this, but also for mental health and how it is treated.
The most poignant part of the whole segment though is when the audience begins to chuckle, thinking he had made an off-the-cuff joke, and he stops them and puts them in their place. This highlights the issue; that so often mental health is a source for humour that the stigma will almost always be there, where its difficult to get people to take it seriously.
