My Nephew commited suicide . It is my hope that
this costume be taken out
of every store in this country. Suicide is not a joke !

Some things are just not funny. I have way to many friends that have lost loved ones suffering from a variety of mental illnesses. 

Had there been a culture of compassion, understanding and support - instead of these types of endorsements behind the stigma of mental illness - my son might very well still be alive.

I'm signing because I'm bipolar and have been in a pysch ward. This only adds to the stimga that I'm "crazy" and people need to be weary of me because I might just snap and go on a killing spree. Stop the Stigma!!

I'm signing because we must be respectful of all people. Those who struggle mentally and emotionally are especially vulnerable.

I signed this because I agree that these costumes are very offensive. It was suggested to me that I dress up as a Crazy Cat Lady this Halloween and so I decided to be a Mentally Healthy Cat Lady instead...so I just went as myself. On a positive note, I did not see even one of these costumes out in public last night.

Thanks for adding your voice.
