Mental Health Awareness Month

Finding access to support should be a right, not a privilege

Mental Health Awareness Month helps people recognize the ways mental illness impacts lives, educates people about available services, and highlights ways to advocate—even if you don't have a mental illness. It's important for caregivers, friends, and loved ones to understand the impact that mental health has on daily life. When people are better educated on these conditions, they can better support and help someone dealing with a mental health issue. 

To continue to further bring awareness to this month we created a mental health toolkit with activities that can help improve our mental health. 

The current state of mental health

1 in 5 U.S. adults experience mental illness each year, and only half of them receive treatment.

1 in 3 U.S teens say they do not have reliable access to mental health resources.

1 in 3 U.S teens say they do not have reliable access to mental health resources.

About one in four adults say there was a time in the past 12 months when they thought they might need mental health services or medication, but could not get them.

The most common barriers reported by youth and adults are cost, lack of or inadequate insurance coverage, and shortage of access to care.
