Actor Joe Pantoliano Discloses Depression; Talks About His Latest Movie and His Sensitive Side
Date:10/9/2007

WASHINGTON, Oct. 9 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Actor Joe Pantoliano reveals a personal history of depression and his belief that his mother struggled with untreated bipolar disorder, in a guest blog entry http://www.nami.org/blog published today by the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI).

Pantoliano's entry comes during Mental Illness Awareness Week (Oct. 8-13) and a few days before the opening of his latest film, CANVAS http://www.canvasthefilm.com in Chicago and New York on Oct. 12. Openings will follow next week in Ft. Lauderdale, Los Angeles and Phoenix.

"Making the movie has been part of a personal journey in coming to understand mental illness. That has included coming to understand myself -and my own struggle with clinical depression."

Pantoliano disclosed his struggle with depression in an exclusive interview with PEOPLE magazine this month. On the NAMI blog, he also reflects on his family's history with mental illness in real life.
