See Something Say Something

Did you know that 1 in 5 Americans is affected by mental health conditions? Most people feel shame and are scared to reach out for help so instead they stay silent. There needs to be more compassion and empathy when it comes to mental illness. We need to be raising awareness and speaking up about these important conditions.

Talk with a doctor or family member to get the help that is needed.
