Our community understands that mental health is essential to overall health, yet mental health care is often times under-funded in comparison to many other health services. Mental Illness can affect persons of any age, race, religion, or income. Most people diagnosed with a serious mental illness can experience relief from their symptoms by actively participating in an individual treatment plan. Without treatment the consequences of mental illness for both the individual and society are staggering: unnecessary disability, unemployment, substance abuse, homelessness, inappropriate incarceration, and suicide. These recent facts provided by the National Alliance on Mental Illness reiterate the importance of mental health services in our community.
