At this point, Daniel [Johnston] is regarded as a genius, a notion that has never been called into question. What does come into question, however, is his daily life; not because it is frowned upon, but because it is mostly a mystery. What we do know about Daniel as a person is brought on by few sources, most of which focus almost entirely on his past struggles with mental illness.

The hallway that connects the two halls of the E3 Convention is long. It takes about 10 minutes to walk, and its gray walls are draped by DragonBall video game advertisements.

On Thursday afternoon, I had the privilege of sitting down with representatives of the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) and doing a live Facebook chat about advances in mental illness. It’s a subject that’s both professionally and personally important to me.
