Mental Health Awareness

How to Be Part of the Solution

Mental Illnesses: Depression

It is reported that nearly 1 in 5 American adults over the age of 18 suffers from mental illness each year. And 1 in 10 of these Americans are suffering from depression in particular at one point in their lives. Over 80% of these individuals are not receiving any specific treatment for their depression, oftentimes due to embarrassment or lack of services.

Suicide Rates in the U.S.

According to US news, last year, the suicide rate in the U.S. was its highest in 25 years! If such a large percentage of our country is silently suffering, we need to raise awareness, and try to eliminate this stigma that has been created.
