-- National Depression Awareness Month is an opportunity to learn more about serious mental illnesses such as depression and bipolar disorder. With one in four adults experiencing a mental health problem in any given year, CNS Healthcare is providing the opportunity for education and awareness through free depression screenings during the entire month of October.
On average, people living with serious mental illness live 25 years less than the rest of the population. One reason is that less than one-third of adults and less than one-half of children with a diagnosed illness receive treatment.
When mental health isn't recognized and treated, the results often are lost jobs and careers, broken families, more homelessness, more welfare and much more expensive costs for hospital emergency rooms, nursing homes, schools, police and even courts, jails and prisons. The more people know about mental illnesses, the better they can help themselves or help their loved ones get the help and support they need
