Mental Health Awareness
Mental Health America is proud to continue its tradition of celebrating "May is Mental Health Month," which began in 1949 to raise awareness of mental health conditions and mental wellness for all.
Do More for 1 in 4 is a call to action to help the 1 in 4 American adults who live with a diagnosable, treatable mental health condition and the fact that they can go on to live full and productive lives.
Some people find it really hard to say what they want and don’t want from their treatment. But, over the years, more and more people with mental health conditions realize it’s their right to speak up. In fact, some people call themselves mental health “consumers” to show that they can choose what services to purchase and where.
So Where Do You Go for Help?
Where you go for help will depend on who has the problem
(an adult or child) and the nature of the problem and/or
symptoms. Often, the best place to start is your local
mental health organization. I've listed below links that can get you started in the right direction.
A vast majority of mental health conditions are treatable, we can–no matter how challenging the mental health obstacle we face–always chart a course back to wellness. Mental health comes in various stages and in all ages, take care of yourself and others around you. I'm sure you know someone maybe even yourself that could use the listed information, pass it along.
