Mental health is an essential component of overall health and well-being. It affects how people think, feel, and behave and impacts every aspect of our lives, including our relationships, work, and physical health.

Mental health conditions are common, affecting one in five adults in the United States each year. Yet, stigma and discrimination surrounding mental health can prevent people from seeking help when they need it most.
