Nearly ten years ago, Kjell Magne Bondevik got sick - sick with clinical depression. He was so depressed that he couldn't get out of bed - much less go to work. The problem was he had an important job - he was the prime minister of Norway. He ended up taking a very public sick leave. Eventually he was able to return to work, and was elected to a second term, serving until 2005. In recent years he's been speaking publicly about the need to eliminate the stigma of mental illness. He addressed the British parliament in January, and he joins Faith Salie on Fair Game from Oslo.
