About TheLIPF:

Every year, one in four adults will suffer from a diagnosable mental disorder.  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.
