Mental Health Awareness Week - October 7th-13th

There is a great need for increased awareness and understanding around the prevalence of mental illness. Studies show that about 1 in 5 Americans have a mental health condition. About 1 in 17 Americans with a mental health condition have a serious illness, such as “major depression, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, panic disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, or borderline personality disorder.” Persons with mental illness often go to clergy for support, rather than to a psychiatrist or general medical doctor.
