Behavioral Health Facts
A mental illness is a medical condition, and not a sign of weakness or a flawed character.
Mental illness can happen at any age, but often occurs in children, adolescents and senior citizens.
The stigma of mental illness can keep many people from seeking treatment.
Untreated mental illness results in unemployment, homelessness, substance abuse, inappropriate incarceration, divorce, and school drop-outs.
Early identification makes a significant difference in full recovery.
People with mental illness lead active, productive lives. Studies have shown that people with mental illness improve, many recovering completely.
