Mental illness is an issue that gets little attention. Recently, more than 100 authors in the science fiction and fantasy genre have banded together in support of those dealing with a mental illness.
Using the hashtag #HoldOnToTheLight, they have opened online discussions for raising awareness regarding diagnosis, treatments and prevention. Topics range from depression and suicide to PTSD, domestic violence and bullying.
Among those authors participating are: Robin Hobb, Jody Lynn Nye, Cat Rambo, Seanan McGuire, Laura Anne Gilman, Chuck Gannon, Kameron Hurley, Catherine Asaro, Gaie Siebold, Karen Miller, Rowena Cory Daniels, David B. Coe, Marc Tassin, and Jonathan Oliver.
