According to the National Institute of Mental Health, almost 43 million American adults have mental health issues—that’s one in five people. 

Look around and realize that there are many individuals in your zone of proximity suffering from the shame, hopelessness, isolation, and other negative emotions that are the defining attributes of mental illness. Perhaps you are one of them.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month. The Rio Salado Library is proud to support Mental Health Awareness Month by pooling together resources to help identify the causes of mental illness and strategies to overcome it.
