May is Mental Health Awareness Month. We would like to highlight not only the prevalence of mental illness, but methods to assess your mental health and get support for mental illness.
Approximately 18% of adults in the U.S. experiences mental illness in a given year according to the National Institute on Mental Health. That is over 43 million Americans, more than the population of Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas, Oklahoma, and New Mexico combined.
Mental illness affects a variety of individuals, regardless of race, gender, age, or economic status. Due to the fact that a stigma has surrounded mental illness for decades, many individuals do not regularly assess their mental health and/or take action to get help.
Take this free mental health assessment today to gauge the wellness of your mental health.
