Patty Duke: R.I.P.

Actress and mental health advocate Patty Duke died earlier this week:
In 1987, Duke publicly revealed she had been diagnosed with bipolar disorder at age 35. She spent much of her later life advocating for mental health, writing a New York Times bestselling book about living with her illness. "You need to accept that there may be some things about yourself you don't like," she wrote in 1997. "You can work on them, but some of them might always be there. As long as they're not destroying you or those around you, that's okay." -- The Week
