Let's talk about mental health

Mental health conditions are far more common than you may think. You are not alone.

In any given year, about 1 in 5 adults in the United States experience mental illness. In 2020 in particular, mental health concerns skyrocketed. By September of last year, more than 8 out of 10 adults experienced moderate to severe symptoms of anxiety.

If you are experiencing challenges with your mental health, it can be overwhelming to know who to talk to or how to seek help. But there is hope. Talk to your healthcare provider about what you’re experiencing. He or she will be able to talk to you about treatments, support groups and resources to cope with mental illness.
