Experiencing a mental illness can often feel like a lonely experience, however, one in four adults have a mental
health challenge.This means that many others share similar struggles, feelings and questions. Hardships such as abuse, stigma, discrimination, homelessness, or traumatic memories can be difficult, but life can get better. Connecting with the right people, finding inner strength and tapping into local programs can make all the difference. There are people who care, who can relate and who want to help others get on the road to recovery.
