Mental Illness Awareness Week
"Inform yourself. Be compassionate of others who may be dealing with depression, anxiety, bipolar, schizophrenia, or any other mental disorder."
Here are some stats from the National Institute of Mental Health:
In a given year, about a quarter of US adults are diagnosable for mental illness.
About one-fifth of THAT population (6% of the total) are classified as severe.
Thirteen percent of US adults are receiving some kind of mental health treatment.
