Carrie Fisher will always be remembered for her legacy as a brilliant actress, producer, and writer. Beyond that, she will always be an inspiration and a role model for her bold advocacy for mental health and recovery. She challenged the stigma of mental illness and substance misuse by openly talking about her struggle with bipolar, cocaine and prescription medication use in her memoirs, Wishful Drinking (2008) and Shockaholic (2011). Carrie Fisher, you will be missed.
