Each year, millions of Americans face the reality of living with a mental health condition, as 1 in 5 U.S. adults will experience a mental health condition in their lifetime. However, everyone is affected or impacted by mental illness through friends and family.

Throughout May, NAMI and participants across the country are raising awareness for mental health. Each year, we fight stigma, provide support, educate the public and advocate for equal care. Each year, the movement grows stronger.

Help us spread the word through the many awareness, support and advocacy activities below by showing you’re #IntoMentalHealth.

 

May the 4th Be With You

May also marks Star Wars Day, a time to celebrate one of our most endearing movie franchises and the heroes who made it so special.  In NAMI’s Share Your Story, read how the themes and lessons of Star Wars helped a bipolar fan with their mental illness.  How Star Wars Helped My Mental Illness

“We have been given a challenging illness, and there is no other option than to meet those challenges. Think of it as an opportunity to be heroic—not ‘I survived living in Mosul during an attack’ heroic, but an emotional survival. An opportunity to be a good example to others who might share our disorder.” ~ Carrie Fisher
