We’re in the middle of a mental health crisis, and it’s crying out for more attention.
Lives are being lost to suicide. Depression, anxiety and other forms of mental illness negatively affect entire families, not just the individual suffering. Work productivity is impacted to a significant degree due to mental health issues.
And yet, there’s still a public stigma associated with mental illness.
Approximately 46 million people are living with mental illness in the United States. On college campuses, 33 per cent of all students suffer from depression, anxiety or other mental health conditions to varying degrees.
