Mental Health Bracelets

My brother was recently diagnosed with schizophrenia. It's a scary mental illness and it's very difficult to get through it, both for him and for the whole family. We are working through it though, and he is acting very normal more and more often. The only therapy I've found that really helps him is acupuncture. I take him to my friend, and former NightRider associate, Phranque Wright. You can see his website here:

If you know somebody with a mental illness and would like to raise awareness of the possibilities of living a normal life and recovery, I found some bracelets you can wear also. The Mental Health Association of Southeastern Pennsylvania is offering orange mental health awareness bracelets with the message "Embrace Recovery." They are silicone bracelets, like the ones for Lance Armstrong, Live Strong.
