May: Mental Health Awareness Month
May has been Mental Health Awareness Month since 1949. One in five Americans has a mental health issue. Depending on its severity, mental illness can be disabling in that it affects a person's thinking and ability to function on a daily basis. Depression, a form of mental illness, can be a result of disability if one dwells on the negative aspects of it. The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) is the United States' largest grassroots mental health organization. For more information, go to https://www.nami.org/.
