Mental Health Awareness Month
Today, nearly one in five U.S. adults live with a mental illness.
May is Mental Health Awareness Month, a time to raise awareness of those living with mental illness or a substance use disorder and to help reduce the stigma associated with them.
The American Psychiatric Association (APA) has developed evidence-based information about common mental disorders, including symptoms, risk factors, and treatment options.
