Mental Illness Awareness Week (NAMI)

Mental Illness Awareness week was created by Congress in 1990 and it supports the efforts of the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI).   The aim of the week is to reduce the stigma associated with mental illness and dispel some of the fears we have about people with mental illness.   The University of Southern California created an infographic, “Facing Mental Illness,” showing some mind dazzling numbers.
