May is Mental Health Awareness Month!

Every May we come together to combat stigma, provide support, and educate the public on mental health issues for Mental Health Awareness Month. 

Together, we can change the facts:

  • 62% of youth with major depressive episodes receive NO treatment

  • 1 in 25 adults experience serious mental health issues that substantially interfere with one or more major life activity

  • On average, there are 129 suicides per day in the United States

  • Only 25% of adults with mental health symptoms believe other people are sympathetic to individuals with mental illness

Each year the support grows stronger, yet we know to continue the momentum of breaking down barriers, we must help increase awareness and understanding of mental health issues in the communities we serve. To help generate awareness, Mental Health America releases a handy toolkit every year packed with fact sheets, shareable images for social media, and a call to action to end the stigma of mental illness.
