Mental illness is the most misunderstood in today's society. Approximately 20% of individuals suffer from some form of mental illness(ex. Anxiety, bipolar, depression, eating disorders, schizophrenia, substance (drugs & alcohol) abuse & addiction, ADD/ADHD). Many people think of it as a "weakness". Nothing could be further from the truth. These are true illnesses and brain diseases. Mental illness effect no only the person but their loved ones as well. Many people struggle with the Silent illness, and the more people that are aware the more we can help.
