BENEFITING: Life Is Priceless Foundation
EVENT DATE: May 03, 2015
Every year, one in four adults will suffer from a diagnosable mental disorder. This year it is very personal for me, I have a very good friend (a brother from another mother), that is suffering. In 2011, the CDC reported that nearly 500,000 people were treated in emergency departments for self-inflicted injuries.
ONLY 61 percent of Americans think it appropriate to tell family members about a mental illness diagnosis, according to a recent study commissioned by the New York City Metro chapter of the National Alliance on Mental Illness. Just 43 percent approve of telling friends about a diagnosis, and just 13 percent of telling co-workers.
It's time to make a difference.
