Theme: The Stigma of Mental Health

This event occurred on
June 21, 2016
Greenville, South Carolina
United States

According to NAMI, the National Association of Mental Illness, in 2014, one in five American adults experienced a mental health issue, one in 10 young people experienced a period of major depression, and one in 25 Americans lived with a serious mental illness, such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, or major depression.

Mental illness and mental health are important issues that, far too often, are kept quiet and silent. Too often the stigma of mental illness requires the individual to live in isolation, to live in darkness, and to live with little hope for help and recovery.
