Dr. Linehan's announcement was much appreciated by the mental health community, but she has reached that stage in her career where she can be honest without having as much to lose whereas if she had been "outed" at an early stage, she probably would have encountered prejudice and roadblocks that would have prevented her from being as successful as she is now. Elyn Saks also mentioned this in her book "This Center Can Not Hold", waiting until she had tenure to divulge her mental illness.
