Mental Health Collaborative empowers communities through awareness and education. We provide a variety of programs for all age groups and community members teaching Mental Health Literacy.
What is Mental Health Literacy?
The knowledge and understanding that helps us become responsible, effective and successful in living full and healthy lives. With good mental literacy we learn how to take better care of ourselves, our loved ones, and our communities.
U.S. adults suffer from a mental illness
In the United States, almost half of adults will experience a mental illness during their lifetime.
Mental Illness is the leading cause of disability in the U.S. citizens ranging in ages from 15 to 44, according to National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) statistics.
Approximately 1 in 5 adults (18 or older) in the U.S. experience a mental illness in any one year, equivalent to 46.6 million people.
Half of all mental disorders begin by age 14 and three-quarters by age 24.
In the United States, only 41 percent of the people who had a mental disorder in the past year received professional health care or other services.
Mental Health Literacy – the knowledge and understanding that helps us live responsible, effective, successful and healthy lives.
Good mental health literacy helps us understand and destigmatize mental disorders and treatments while promoting and optimizing good mental health.
