Mental Health Awareness Month 2019

May is National Mental Health Awareness Month.  Each year millions of Americans live with a mental illness, affecting one in 5 individuals.  During May, Mental Help America helps raise awareness by fighting stigma, providing support, educating the public, and advocating for policies that support those with mental illness.  Half of all lifetime mental health conditions begin by age 14, and 75 percent by age 24, but early intervention programs can help.  More information on mental health can be found here:
