Political candidates are no longer ducking mental health issues as if they disqualified them from office. In Portland, Oregon, a co-founder of Mental Health Association is entering the city council race. And in Minn., the Star Tribune reports the Democratic candidate for governor, Mark Dayton, acknowledged a history of depression. They join a handful of other politicians who have stepped forward, despite stigma and discrimination, to acknowledge their own treatment or that of a relative.
