✨May is Mental Health Awareness Month! ✨
Some facts about mental illness (according to the national alliance on mental illness)
🔹1 in 5 children ages 13-18 have, or will have a serious mental illness, as well as 1 in 5 adults
🔹The average delay between onset of symptoms and intervention is 8-10 years
🔹Nearly 60% of adults with a MI didn't receive mental health services in the previous year 🔹People of color are 20% more likely to experience serious mental health problems 🔹LGBTQIA+ individuals are two times more likely to have a mental health condition .
It is very likely that someone you know and love is suffering from some kind of mental illness, especially anxiety and depression. I myself have both, but I am lucky enough to receive free therapy through my university. Not everyone is that lucky.
Be aware 💚 (This look is for a collaboration that will be up at the end of next week!)
