An Exclusive Interview With Actress Glenn Close About Her Work With Bring Change 2 Mind in Business Review USA

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - January 21, 2011) - Business Review USA, the top digital media source for American business news, gets an exclusive interview with actress Glenn Close and speaks about how she got involved with and helped to create Bring Change 2 Mind, a not-for-profit organization that helps fight against the stigma associated with mental illness.

"I had the pleasure of speaking with Close when she came to San Diego for an International Bipolar Foundation event, produced by Steve Redfearn of Redfearn & Associates, to speak on and fight against the stigma associated with mental illness. Her sister, Jessie Close, who is bi-polar, and nephew Calen, who is schizophrenic, was also in attendance," the Editor-in-Chief wrote.

'"Globally, 1 in 4 families are touched by mental illness, so most of us know something of it or have been touched by the illness,' Close says. 'It's a condition of being a human being. And I think it's time that we accept that, that we start talking openly about it without shame, without fear or censure about it.'"

'"The organization is just over a year old and promotes the coming together of people who have the relief available to tell their stories in a forum where people understand and will support them,' she says. 'It's possible to manage the illness and still live a productive life.'"
