Mary Walsh on mental health: "We can't keep using ignorance as an excuse"
Comedian and actress Mary Walsh taps her own struggles to speak out about addiction.
Comedian Mary Walsh may be known for her bold, mayor-confronting characters, but the real woman behind the sword-wielding Princess Warrior is on a crusade of her own.
Walsh joins guest host Shad to discuss her work as a mental health advocate for the annual Bell "Let's Talk" campaign. Drawing from her personal struggle with alcoholism, the This Hour Has 22 Minutes star speaks frankly about the loneliness and isolation of addiction, and why stigma hasn't stopped her from speaking out.
