Talking about mental health conditions can help someone dealing with the illness find help.  A forum titled "Say It Out Loud" is scheduled for Friday night at the Alton High School Auditorium, and will feature a handful of speakers that will talk about their experiences.

Event organizer A.J. French tells The Big Z there is a stigma - if not full prejudice - when dealing with mental health issues.
