May is National Mental Health Month

Even if you don’t suffer from a mental health condition yourself, chances are that you know someone else who does. It’s estimated that 1 in 4 Americans will experience a mental disorder in any given year, though fewer than one-third of adults and half of children will receive any form of treatment. Mental health issues can range from anxiety to depression to substance abuse. These are real medical conditions and should be treated as such. Mental Health Month is intended to raise awareness and understanding of these disorders. By highlighting available screenings and treatments, we can help millions of people get the help they need.
