THE STORY:

KAREN GISSIN wrote -

1 in 4 people experience a mental health disorder in a given year and 1 in 17 live with a serious mental illness.  Help me support NAMI - National Alliance on Mental Illness.  Stop the Stigma, Get Involved, Give Today!

I am a member of the NAMI (National Alliance on Mentally Ill) Leadership Alliance and have been for 5 years. I am dedicated to raising funds and awareness for NAMI and eradicating the stigma associated with mental illness.

•Mental illnesses are serious medical illnesses. They cannot be overcome through "will power" and are not related to a person's "character" or intelligence. Mental illness falls along a continuum of severity. Even though mental illness is widespread in the population, the main burden of illness is concentrated in a much smaller proportion-about 6 percent, or 1 in 17 Americans-who live with a serious mental illness. The National Institute of Mental Health reports that One in four adults-approximately 57.7 million Americans-experience a mental health disorder in a given year.
