If It’s Mental Illness, There’s No Lasagna
Mental illness has been called the “non-casserole disease”. When your child is seriously physically ill, it is common for neighbors and friends to bring casseroles, and offer to help. But if we learn that someone’s son is diagnosed with bi-polar disorder, or that their daughter has attempted suicide, we stay away. As Unitarians, we understand the inherent worth and dignity of all people, and our interdependence on one another. Erik Erikson, the German-American psychologist, said “Life doesn’t make any sense without interdependence. We need each other, and the sooner we learn that, the better for us all.” This service is about how we can support families in the midst of a mental health crisis.
There are things we hold onto long after they have dried up and faded away, like the ghosts in a ghost story. Let’s talk today about the relationships we have with the things we want to leave behind, and how to cut the ropes that tie us to these dead ideas.
