Celebrating Mental Awareness Month
May is Mental Health Awareness Month — a time for renewed focus on mental health. It is a critical health problem in the U.S. according to the Department of Health.
An estimated 46 million American adults experience mental illness in a given year but only 41% get help for it, according to the National Alliance on Mental Illness. The problems range from depression and anxiety to substance abuse. A big reason why so many don’t seek help is stigma. But there’s no shame in finding a listening, caring voice and sometimes just being heard and discussing solutions is all it takes.
