Existing treatments improve the lives of 70-90 percent of Americans with psychiatric disorders, and more effective treatments and preventive strategies are published every year. Yet stigma surrounding these disorders diminishes confidence that mental disorders are real, treatable health conditions. Education, awareness and advocacy are needed to ensure healthier individuals, families and communities.
Through our Young Leaders in Mental Health group, the next generation is stepping up to:
Advocate for education, successful treatment and scientific research of mental illness
Increase awareness of psychiatric disorders
Create a future where those who suffer have access to resources
Pledge that the stigma of mental illness will not burden the next generation
Annual membership dues: Individuals $35 per year Couples $60 per year
