Mental Health Awareness

Mental Illness Awareness Week

Each year, millions of Americans face the reality of living with mental health conditions. However, mental illness affects everyone directly or indirectly through family, friends or co-workers.  Despite mental illnesses’ reach and prevalence, stigma and misunderstanding are also, unfortunately, widespread.
 
That is why each year, during the first week of October, NAMI and participants across the country raise awareness of mental illness. Each year, we educate the public, fight stigma and provide support for those living with a mental illness.  And, each year our movement grows stronger.
 
We believe that mental health conditions are important to discuss year round, but highlighting them during Mental Illness Awareness Week provides a dedicated time for mental health advocates across the country to come together as one united voice.”
