Learn more about the signs and symptoms of mental illness
Mental health is as important today as it’s ever been. Too often we hear about situations that could have been avoided if help was sought and provided timely and effectively. Mental illness in this day and age is far more prevalent than it has been it the past. Although, people still feel apprehensive about sharing their illness with others, seeking support is essential for their well-being.
Mental health is real and has a significant impact on individuals’ day-to-day life as well as their relationships, aspirations and general life goals. A study performed by the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) in 2015 reported that 17.9% of U.S. adults suffered from a mental health condition (NIMH, 2015). That is 43.4 million individuals, think about that for a moment!
