NAMI Wood County Calls on Everyone to Get Into Mental Health
Mental Illness Awareness Week is Oct. 1–7, 2017. Each year, the first full week of October provides an opportunity to fight stigma, provide support, educate the public and advocate for equal care.
One in five adults experiences mental illness problems every year, and 50% of chronic mental illness begins by age 14. Although many people today understand that mental illness is a medical condition, individuals and families affected by mental illness are still often subjected to stigma and discrimination.
This year, the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) is calling on everyone to get “Into Mental Health” and replace stigma with hope.
Follow NAMI Wood County on Facebook for great material on being Inspired, Informed and Involved locally!
Part of Mental Illness Awareness Week, National Depression Screening Day is Thursday Oct. 5. Take this anonymous questionnair that can help identify potential signs of depression www.mentalhealthscreening.org/programs/ndsd.
