Wait, issuing a news release is brave now?

While my sympathy goes out to Regina Tory MP Dave Batters as he deals with his mental health and drug addiction issues, is what he did really worthy of the praise being heaped upon him by the mental health community?
Okay, sure, as a public figure, he deserves some credit for bringing mental health issues to public eye. But as an elected member of Parliament, a member of the ruling government even, isn't a press release really the least he could have done for mental health?
