How To A Loved One's Mental Health​

This article by Brendan McLean appeared at NAMI.org on May. 22, 2015.

In any given year, only 60% of people with a mental illness get mental health care. As a result, family members and caregivers often play a large role in helping and supporting them.

Millions of people have experienced the thoughts and questions you might be having now. You may be trying to help a family member who doesn’t have access to care or doesn’t want help. Or you may want to learn how to support and encourage someone who has been hospitalized or experienced a similar mental health crisis. Take a look at this infographic we developed with our friends at HealthCentral for some ideas on how to support a loved one.
