Prevalence of Mental Illness

I’m joining in on a call tonight with Patrick Kennedy about removing the stigma of mental illness and increasing awareness and services. I was looking over the write up about what will be covered and couldn’t believe the statistics. Mental illness is 3 or 4 times more prevalent than some of our most managed illnesses, yet we ignore it, judge it, blame those who have it, and leave them to fight alone. Something is wrong here.
