"It is no different than diabetes, high blood pressure or any other medical diagnosis".

That is why this year's Mental Health Month theme for May is "Risky Business". The more we educate, the more comfortable people will feel getting help.

May is Mental Health Month - started 68 years ago by Mental Health America (MHA), to raise awareness about mental health conditions and the importance of good mental health for everyone. If symptoms are minor in the beginning, they could escalate to a risky level.
