We believe that it is important for anyone living with a mental illness to have correct information to help them make the best decision about their care and lives.
One in every five adults in the U.S. will experience a mental health condition in any given year. If you are experiencing symptoms of a mental illness for the first time, have a diagnosis of a mental illness, or are recovering from a mental illness, you are not alone. Mental illnesses are treatable, and help is available. Many people recover from mental illnesses and live full and meaningful lives.
What is recovery?
Recovery means something different for each person. For some people, recovery means their symptoms have disappeared, while for others, it means they are able to effectively manage their symptoms using different strategies, skills, supports, coping mechanisms, or medications.
Our website is full of information to help you understand more about your specific illness, treatment available and support needed. We have dedicated this section to focus on non-treatment-related concerns you might face depending on the severity of your illness.
