Mental illness can affect anyone during different stages of their lives, whether it's direct or indirect through family, friends, or coworkers.
In the United States, research indicates that nearly one in five adults live with a mental illness. More alarmingly, only half of these people are actually willing to treat their mental illness, with the rest going untreated because of the stigma attached to society around mental health.
With concerns about mental health continually rising in the US, it’s important we strive to educate, fight the stigma, and inspire communities to have open conversations - because doing so can save lives. We need to bring a positive change in society to fight the stigma related to mental illness and health problems.
This is what Mental Illness Awareness Week 2020 (4-10th October) is all about. It aims to encourage people so that they can come forward and talk about their mental health problems without any hesitation. It also helps to break the stigma that stops people to ask for help.
