Education

Mental illness in today's society is commonly misunderstood and misrepresented in a manner that leads to false perceptions about those who deal with mental health issues.  Education is an important tool in combatting such stigma and misconceptions.  An important part of educating the public involves informing them about the widespread nature of mental illness, which is certain to affect at least one person that any given individual knows.  Below are some quick facts about mental illness:
