    We know most of our neighbors, and have parties with quite a few of them several times a year. This is fairly unusual according to most of my non-neighbor friends. I attribute it to not just having great neighbors (that helps, obviously), but to having conversation pieces in our front yard that encourage people to come and ask questions (timber bamboo, little name tags on our plants, faces drawn on our cacti, a store in the garage). We are also out in our front yard a lot, and I say hi to people walking by. We walk around the neighborhood a lot ourselves, and say hi to people whom we pass. Give people an opening to be friendly and start a conversation, and they usually will.

    People with Mental Health differences are people too. This article headine is stigmatising. Unkind.

      I second that!

      To the author of the article: figuring out what you really meant when you used the word "crazy" can show you how you perpetuate stigma with language like this. Mental illness stigma kills people.
