Did you know that one out of four American families is affected by mental illness? With names like depression, anxiety disorder, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia and OCD, these illnesses touch the lives of many of our families, friends, neighbors and co-workers. Because of a lack of education, there is a great deal of stigma attached to these illnesses. Often, this causes people to remain silent and isolated and keeps them from getting the help they need. The right treatment and support can enable a person to live a full and productive life.
