The National Comorbidity Survey (NCS) reported that half of Americans meet criteria for a mental disorder at some point in their life. Yet somehow there is still a cultural stigma associated with mental illness. Only 40% of people suffering from a psychiatric disorder ever receive treatment.
Please remember that if you suffer from a mental illness, it is not a sign of weakness. It’s not something you brought on yourself, or something you can just “snap out of.” There is a road to recovery, and seeing a doctor is the first step.
