You are not alone

Mental health affects all of us regardless of culture, race, ethnicity, gender, or sexual orientation. Anxiety disorders, eating disorders, depression, ADHD, addictions, and bipolar disorder are all examples of common, treatable mental health conditions. 20% of American adults and youth ages 13-18 experience mental illness.
