The “most stupendous of all lotteries, in all ages” took place in Washington D.C., affecting the military fate of 10 million young Americans. It was the World War I draft lottery, in which all eligible men were assigned a number. The 1,370,000 with the lowest numbers would be eligible for the first call-up, and local draft boards would then select 687,000 of those men to be “ordered to colors,” i.e., ordered to report for service. The plan was to immediately create an army of 500,000 men to fight in Europe.

For years I struggled to deal with or talk about my diagnosis. The term “mental illness” was something I could not bring myself to say. And starting therapy seemed like admitting defeat to me. While I felt alone in those feelings at the time, I now recognize that millions of people across the country experience the negative impacts of societal stigma against mental illness. That is why I was concerned as I read The Spokesman-Review editorial “Strengthen the grip on mental illness” (May 16). I can, of course, appreciate calls for greater funding and a shifting of priorities when it comes to our country’s mental health system, but the context in which we make those calls, and the language we use to do it matters.
