WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT MENTAL ILLNESS

Did you know that it’s estimated that 1 in 5 Americans will experience a mental illness. This means that someone you know – and potentially someone you love – is struggling with their mental health, yet it often is overlooked. Mental illness is considered a “silent disease,” and many people struggle alone and do not ask for help and other mental health conditions to go unnoticed or unaddressed.  If you are someone you know is struggling with mental health symptoms, please get help (NAMI, 2024).  

Help is available, speak to someone immediately.
