Wallace encourages people to see their psychiatrist and get the help they need and overcome the stigma. It is a very interesting interview and the psychiatrist shares an anecdote in the transcript a quote from one of the greatest presidents in American history, Abraham Lincoln, who also struggled with clinical depression and thoughts of suicide. In one of his diary entries, Lincoln wrote:
I am now the most miserable man living. If what I feel were equally distributed to the whole human family, there would not be one cheerful face on the earth. Whether I shall ever be better, I cannot tell. I awfully forebode, I shall not.
Keep hope alive! And thank you Mike Wallace for your service to journalism.
