Mental health professionals continue to advocate for increased awareness and resources for individuals struggling with mental health issues amid some startling statistics about the prevalence of mental illness in the US. It's estimated that nearly one in five adults in the US suffer from a diagnosable mental illness. To help address this issue, a new campaign has been launched to raise awareness of mental illness and break down the stigma surrounding it.
Many people who suffer from a mental illness such as depression or anxiety feel ashamed and isolated as if they are the only ones going through it. This isn't true, and TMS-NW wants to help those struggling to know they have support and resources available.
Mental illness can affect anyone, regardless of appearance or status. The stigma around mental illness often prevents people from seeking help, which can lead to more severe issues down the line. Recognizing warning signs for mental illness is crucial, such as changes in mood, behavior, or daily routine.
TMS-NW believes it's important to encourage individuals to establish meaningful relationships with city resources like counseling services and community support groups. By seeking help early on, many people can learn to manage their condition and minimize its impact on their life; by working together, communities can help end the stigma surrounding mental illness and provide support and resources for those in need.
