Talking about mental illness is hard. There is a stigma in society that surrounds mental illness. This stigma prevents many people from getting the help they need. Don’t let that happen to you or a loved one. Mental illness is common. About 1 in 5 people will experience some sort of mental illness in their lifetime. Don’t be worried. Your family doctor is a good place to begin talking about mental illness.
