Days of Our Lives – Linsey Godfrey Wants To Reduce The Stigma

Linsey credits her good health to medication, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and a strong network of friends and family. Linsey announced her diagnosis on social media last year. Linsey was thrilled with this comment on her post. “It was nerve-racking, and I genuinely thought I would never work again,” Linsey posted. “[But] as soon as I did it, someone commented, ‘Thank you.’ It was worth it to know that one person went, ‘Oh my God. It’s not just me.’ ”Mental illness doesn’t discriminate,” Linsey says. “It doesn’t care who you are, or what family you were born into, or what your experiences were. The more we talk about it, the less alone everybody would feel.”
