Wilson: Sky-Hi columnist can do better to change perception

To the Editor:

Page 6 of the Middle Park Times, Jan. 31, contains a Guest Opinion entitled

“It’s time to de-stigmatize mental illness.” Also on page 6 is an opinion

by William Hamilton in which he states, “The killers may be crazy.”

There are many other words which Mr. Hamilton could have chosen which would

convey his meaning without negatively stereotyping all mental illness as

crazy. We can all do our part to change perceptions.
