We all have mental health. However, it may be good or bad depending on the circumstances we face, the coping mechanisms we employ, and the support systems we have in place. According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, about 1 in 5 people in the U.S. live with a mental health disorder... But did you know that more than half of U.S. counties lack a single psychiatrist? In addition, the gap between need and access is wider among some populations, including those in rural areas.

Supported by NAMI*, Mental Health Awareness Month each May is a time for everyone to unite to increase awareness about mental health and encourage conversation. Together, we can fight against stigma, provide support, educate the public, and advocate for policies that assist the millions of people in the U.S. who are impacted by mental health issues.
