OFFICE OF THE VICE PRESIDENT
December 15, 2000
I want to take this opportunity to tell you how much I appreciate your thoughtfulness in sending your book. I am deeply moved when I hear from Americans with personal knowledge of the impact mental illness has on family and friends.
As you know, my personal commitment is to end the stigma associated with mental illness, increase access to mental health care, and improve the quality of treatment. Having the benefit of your experience greatly enhances my efforts on behalf of millions of Americans who share these concerns.
Please accept my warmest best wishes and hopes for your continued success in the future.
