Mental Health Resources

According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), 1 in 5 adults experiences a mental health condition and 1 in 20 lives with a serious mental illness such as schizophrenia or bipolar disorder.

Mental illnesses affect how people relate to others, think, feel, and function day-to-day. Stigma associated with mental illness can be damaging to a person’s self-worth and often prevents them from getting the help they need. People with serious mental illness also often struggle to take care of other chronic health problems they may have like diabetes or heart conditions, leading to premature death – about 25 years earlier than those without mental illnesses.

Despite the challenges, people with mental illness can learn to manage symptoms and improve their health so they can recover through stability, support and guidance from others.
