Mental Health Awareness Month

Mental illness is a real condition that affects a person's thinking, feeling, behavior, or mood. It's also common: 1 in 5 U.S. adults report mental illness each year. Unfortunately, these conditions deeply impact day-to-day living and may also affect the ability to relate to others. The good news? It's no one's fault and it's treatable. Help reduce the stigma often associated with mental health conditions during Mental Health Awareness Month or any time of the year and help you or your loved ones find the resources they need.
