Martin Sheen Makes A PSA On Mental Illness

| Filed under: InspirationCharlie Sheen

Talk about irony!

Several years ago, Martin Sheen got involved with the Peace of Mind Project.

The organization states:

“There is no poverty greater than the poverty of serious mental illness as experienced by the last outcasts of our society. This website seeks to effectively raise awareness for the mentally ill and create an awakening of the American conscience by telling to truth of mental illness to all Americans. Once we have heard the truth, we can begin to eradicate the stigma which has been the biggest stumbling block in getting millions of Americans the proper medical and social benefits they so desperately need.”

And to help support the cause, Martin did a public service announcement about mental illness.

    Charlie Sheen + PSA for mental illness. This is the classic definition of an oxymoron.



  2. 2

    tiger blood anyone?

    Shame on the media for making a mockery of Charlie Sheen, who is so obviously suffering from a full blown manic episode most likely associated with a serious mental illness. Where is our compassion, people?

    Well, he may have had an inkling then of what was going on with his son, and it gave him sympathy for others going through the same thing so he wanted to help i any way he could.

    you mean you are mentally ill? I thought so.

    I typed up a really long post praising martin sheen for this, but it got deleted when the page didn't reload properly. Oh well. I'm not gonna type it all again, but I was basically thanking Martin Sheen for bringing such a serious issue to everyone's attention. Most folks have no idea that a huge percentage of the American homeless are suffering from a mental illness. Therefore, making it a lot harder for them to get the help that they need. It also makes it worse when a mentally ill person abuses drugs and alcohol- it's like adding fuel to the fire. I was also talking about specific examples of the subject, such as the large amount of those types of people in the outskirts of las vegas. Oh, and how one street over from my place in Virginia there is a recently renovated area that has been losing business because of all of the mentally ill folks getting kicked out of halfway houses. But anyways, I hope more celebrities follow in Martin Sheen's path with this. God knows, its much better than a lot of the other PSA's that celebrities have put out the past few years. =/

    its not nice to joke around about mental illness

    mental illness is serious

    just because someone is ranting that the boss closed the show down doesnt make them 'mentally ill' just makes them really really annoyed
    if charlie was mentally ill like people seem to be alluding then he wouldnt of done the show for 8 years as he couldnt sustain it that long …

    Re: Jann Durkin – You know that he and his father are not the same person, right? It must be really painful for him to watch his son go through this in front of the whole world. I bet you're in no position to judge anyone.
