The National Council’s President and CEO, Linda Rosenberg, was featured yesterday in the Huffington Post with a special editorial about Mental Illness Awareness Week, October 7-13. In her editorial, “Rooting for Recovery,” Linda wrote, “Chances are, you have a friend, family member or colleague living with a mental illness. Their goal is not a championship, but recovery. Recovery means something different to everyone — but can include a complete remission of symptoms, or learning to manage one’s illness so that they can carry out their daily lives — going to work, or managing relationships.” Click here to continue reading.
In recognition of Mental Illness Awareness Week, the National Council has also released several infographics displaying the impact of mental illness in the U.S. and paths to recovery. We encourage you to share these infographics on your websites and social media sites.
