I was watching the Today show this morning and they were talking about how Susan Boyle made it known that she had been diagnosed as having Aspergers. Recently other celebrities have been open about their own diagnosis. I think it is wonderful for awareness and that the general public sees that ANYONE can be affected even the 'untouchable' celebrities.
Do you think when celebrities speak about a cause, whether it directly affects them or not, it helps the cause and brings more awareness?
Personally, I'll take any exposure we can get if it means more people are aware and willing to help or listen or show compassion or even just try to understand.
