1 in 5 U.S. adults experience mental illness each year. 1 in 6 U.S. youth aged 6-17 experience a mental health disorder each year. 50% of all lifetime mental illness begins by age 14, and 75% by age 24. Suicide is the 2nd leading cause of death among people aged 10-14.
But we believe these numbers can change.
As the local affiliateof the nation's largest grassroots mental health organization, serving Union, Delaware and Morrow Counties, we work every day to build a future where mental illness will no longer determine a person’s fulfillment of his or her potential. Our mission is to improve the quality of life for people with mental illness and their families through support, education, and advocacy.
