Mental Health Awareness

Laura Montoya

 1 in 4 people suffer from mental illness in a given year.

One in four. That means that someone you know might be struggling right now to deal with an illness that you can't see. Ranging from Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), mental illness can be influenced by genetics, environment, or lifestyle, and a traumatic event or the presence of excessive stress can make a person more susceptible. And despite some antiquated theories on the topic, mental illness is not a personality defect or a character flaw and getting help is NOT a sign of weakness.  

If Mental Health Awareness Month accomplished one thing, we hope it convinced people that mental illness is no more controllable than cancer or the common cold; it is an indiscriminate affliction that requires treatment and attention.

Though Mental Health Awareness month ended on May 31, we know that a date on the calendar won't change the reality of living with a mental disorder or the stigma associated with it. 2-1-1 Kings County and Kings County Behavioral Health want you to know that there is hope and there is help for those who suffer from mental illness. There are low-cost and free resources available to residents of Kings County; nobody should suffer through mental illness on their own.
