It's Friday and it's time for a little mental health break. If you've got just five minutes today before you wrap up the week, check out this video of Faith Jegede's Ted Talk where she shares what she learned by growing up with her autistic brothers.


Jegede's story is both funny and touching as she reminds us just how extraordinary her brothers - and all of the children diagnosed with this increasingly common condition- truly are.
