Mental Health is Health
Mental health is a state of balance in our thoughts, emotions and behaviors. That balance allows us to feel good about life, supporting our ability to participate in daily activities and accomplish our goals.
Mental health problems are the single largest cause of disabilities in the world, and it's estimated that about 20% of people in the United States will experience a mental health issue each year, with symptoms ranging from mildly disruptive to severe. However, the majority of mental health issues go untreated because people are still afraid to talk about them due to shame, misunderstanding, negative attitudes and fear of discrimination.
Let's help shine a light on mental health and talk about it with family, friends and professionals to get the care we need.
