The number of Americans who are suffering from some form of mental or emotional illness as well as addiction is astounding. In some cases, the mental illness is a by-product of the victim’s struggles with addiction. Other times, the mental illness comes from an injury or chemical issues in the brain. Of course, for the victim, the causes matter little if they don’t have access to treatment. Every year, mental health care organizations all over the country to unite to celebrate Mental Health Awareness Month.
About Mental Health Awareness Month
Dealing with a mental illness is a challenge for even the strongest among us. Many of the most prominent mental disorders can be debilitating, often affecting the victim’s quality of like. Unfortunately, many Americans are passing through everyday life without knowing they have a mental disorder.
Mental Health Awareness Month is all about educating people about the effects of mental disorders. This year, like in years past, sponsors have designated May as a month of celebration for mental health care organizations. From one state to the next, a number of these organizations will be allocating resources to educate people about mental health issues. Many of them will also be offering free screenings to help fellow Americans determine if they need treatment. Hopefully, a higher level of awareness will eventually result in a lower level of suffering.
