In today’s society, mental health is a prominent issue. Despite this attention, mental health issues have the tendency to be glamorized, and there are many who brush off young people’s struggles with mental health. In our experience, young people are often struggling with mental health issues; they are concerned about their future career paths, stressed about classes, struggling with relationships, and the list goes on. Young people’s struggles should not be overlooked. Our goal is to create a community which is open about mental health, and one that supports one another through their difficult times.
NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness, is the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to building better lives for the millions of Americans affected by mental illness. Today, NAMI works in your community to provide support to those in need.
