Mental illness affects nearly 1 in 4 Americans - people of all ages, across all
walks of life. There are many types of mental illness and those affected may be
your friends, neighbors, a family member, or even you.
Mental illness isn’t something to be ashamed of or ignored. It’s real and more common than you may think. The consequences can be serious. If you or someone you know is showing signs of persistent sadness, excessive fear, worry, anxiety, or other troubling behaviors, don’t be sidelined. Mental illness is treatable. The first step is to ask for help.
Make your mental health a priority and get back in the game. It’s worth winning.
