BARRIERS TO SEEKING HELP

There are many reasons people don’t seek help for behavioral issues when they need it. But most of them have something to do with the stigmas people often associate with mental illness. Shame and embarrassment are common, as is the attitude that “if I don’t admit to having a problem, it might just go away.”

Our mission is to dispel these feelings and attitudes through education. Too often mental illness is seen as a weakness in character rather than what it really is: a neurobiological or psychological condition. A condition that’s really no different than having diabetes or arthritis.

With proper diagnosis and treatment, those living with mental illness can lead successful and meaningful lives. After all, choosing to deal with these issues isn’t an indication of weakness—it’s proof of wisdom and courage.
