If you or your loved one develops a mental health condition, it’s important to know that you’re not alone. One in five people will experience a mental illness this year, and one in 25 Americans lives with a serious mental health condition. Mental health professionals have effective treatments for most of these conditions, yet in any given year, 60 percent of people with a mental illness don’t get mental health care. As a result, family members and caregivers often play a large role in helping and supporting them.
You do not need to face the challenges of mental illness alone. NAMI Southwestern Pennsylvania is here to offer support and resources that are essential for each person and family to take steps toward recovery.
