Mental Illness Awareness Week
Identifying and intervening during the early stages of mental illness can make a world of difference in a person’s life, which is why Mental Health America advocates for Before Stage 4 (B4Stage4) thinking. We wouldn’t wait until Stage 4 to treat other medical conditions, so why do we wait when it comes to our mental health?
During Mental Illness Awareness Week (October 1-7, 2017), we will be focusing on increasing understanding of what #mentalillnessfeelslike, so others can learn more about the wide range of symptoms experienced by those living with a mental illness, and in reducing the misunderstanding and stigma that is prevalent with mental health conditions. We will also continue to expand the reach of our screening program as a means of providing a free-resource for the millions of Americans that might be concerned about their mental health.
