Reaching Out to the Mentally Ill

 President Barack Obama vowed on Monday at a conference at the White House to "get rid of the embarrassment and stigma" of mental health problems and help people who need help, tackling a serious problem in the country.

"We want to let people living with mental health challenges know that they are not alone, and we've got to be making sure that we're committed to support those fellow Americans, because struggling with a mental illness or caring for someone who does can be isolating," the president said.
