United We Change the Conversation About Mental Health

Join the Conversation. Change the Conversation. 

 
In Times of crisis, like the one we face now, it's especially important to support mental health. Studies show that 1 in 5 adults experience mental illness, yet less than half recieve the support they need. 
 
Many indivduals do not seek mental health treatment because of a lack of resources or the feared stigma attached to mental illness. 

What You Can Do to Change the Conversation

The social distancing our community is practicing can lead to increased feelings of fear, anxiety, depression, boredom, anger, frustration, irritability, and even stigmatization if you are sick or have been exposed to someone with COVID-19. Learn to recognize these feelings and reach out to family, friends, or other people in your support network or a trained professional to talk about your mental health.
