The National Alliance on Mental Illness is dedicated to assisting in support and awareness. Millions of Americans live with a mental health condition. It affects everyone directly or indirectly. Stress, work-life balance, depression, and substance addiction can affect us at one point in our lives.
While often misunderstood, mental illness is treatable. Many of those diagnosed achieve strength and recovery through participating in individual or group treatments, medication therapy, or a combination of these. There are many different treatment options available. There is no treatment that works for everyone – individuals can chose the treatment, or combination of treatments, that works best.
