The Price of Silence: Speaking Up, Ending Stigma
Liza Long is the mother of a child who has bipolar disorder. She wrote an emotional response to the tragic school shooting in Newtown, which the Boise State University online journal The Blue Review published as “I Am Adam Lanza’s Mother.” In her book, The Price of Silence, she takes a devastating look at how we address mental illness, especially in children, who are funneled through a system of education, mental healthcare, and juvenile detention that leads far too often to prison. She is speaking in a way that we cannot help but hear, and she won’t stop until something changes.
