Did you know that one in four Americans will have a diagnosable, treatable mental health condition sometime in their lives? They are our mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, children and friends. They are our neighbors and coworkers. One in four means that mental illness isn't just something that happens to people we don't know. One in four means that whenever four buddies are out golfing, two couples are dining together, or when four singers harmonize, one person in the group is likely to be affected by a diagnosable mental illness. It's your mom, your kid, your uncle, your friend. Mental illness doesn't just affect strangers. It affects people we know and love.
it's one in four of US.
