Did you know May is Mental Health Awareness Month?
Since 1949, Mental Health America has led the observance of Mental Health Month in May, providing resources for the millions of Americans affected by mental illness. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, an estimated 50% of all Americans diagnosed with a mental illness or disorder at some point in their lifetime.
There are so many misconceptions out there regarding mental health!
Some of the most common myths out there include:
Myth: Mental illness is permanent
Truth: Studies show many people diagnosed with a mental illness can recover completely.
Myth: Mental illness will not affect me
Truth: Mental illness is very common; in fact, it is estimated 1 in every 5 American adults will experience some type of mental illness in their lifetime. If you know more than 5 people, then you likely know someone who is struggling with mental illness.
Myth: Therapy is a waste of time
Truth: Every individual has unique needs, including what interventions work with their lifestyle and symptoms. For some, medication works, for others, therapy and coping skills are more effective. In many cases, a combination of both are effective. The point here is no two people with a mental illness are exactly alike, and every person deserves comprehensive support tailored to their unique needs.
