Don Lemon on Recognizing Mental Health Issues During Former Relationship

DonLemonIn a blog post, Don Lemon talks about the mental health problems 22-year-old Elliot Rodger‘s hid from police before killing seven people, including himself, on Friday in Isla Vista, California.

Lemon opens up about his own experience seeing the signs of mental illness.

And from my personal experience that is usually the case with those who hide their mental health issues from friends and coworkers. I dealt with it recently for five years in a relationship. To this day, no one other than me and a few family members know.

The CNN anchor goes on to note that if there’s nothing in a person’s outward behavior to suggest impending violence, there’s not much a friend or spouse can do.
