When we think about cancer, heart disease,or diabetes, we donít wait years to treat them. We start before Stage 4ówe begin with prevention. When people are in the first stage of those diseases and are beginning to show signs or symptoms, we try immediately to reverse them. We donít ignore them. In fact,we develop a plan of action to reverse and sometimes stop the progression of the disease. So why donít we do the same for individuals who are dealing with potentially serious mental illness?

50% of Americans will meet the criteria for a diagnosable mental health condition sometime in their life, and half of those people will develop conditions by the age of 14.

Many people do not seek treatment in the early stages of mental illnesses because they donít recognize the symptoms. Screening can help catch mental health problems earlyóB4Stage4.
