Mental Health Awareness Month

Breaking Barriers, Building Hope

Mental Health Awareness Month helps people recognize the ways mental illness impacts lives, educates individuals about available services, and the importance of advocacy—even for those not directly affected by mental illness. It's crucial for caregivers, friends, and loved ones to understand the daily impact of mental health. When people are better educated on these conditions, they can provide more effective support and assistance to someone dealing with a mental health issue.

To continue raising awareness this month, download our free mental health toolkit featuring simple activities that promote mental wellness. 

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.

Nearly one in four adults reported needing mental health services or medication in the past 12 months but were unable to access them.

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

Accessible mental health support should be a standard, not a struggle
