Mental Health Awareness - October

According to a National Institute of Mental Health study in 2017, approximately 1 in 5 adults (46.6 million) experiences mental illness in a given year in the U.S. Not only adults, but children and youth are being affected at shocking rates as well. In fact, mental illness affects everyone in one way or another—either directly or indirectly through family, friends or co-workers.

Despite how common it is to know someone dealing with anxiety, depression, or substance use, there is still a significant amount of stigma and misunderstanding about mental illness. Even within the church, a person with mental illness can feel isolated and alone.

Our Health Ministry Nurses have compiled some resources that can help you or a loved one through difficult times.
