Each year millions of Americans face the reality of living with a mental illness. During May, National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) joins the national movement to raise awareness about mental health. Together, they fight stigma, provide support, educate the public and advocate for policies that support people with mental illness and their families.
Get Involved and Spread Awareness
Here are some tips on how to get involved and spread awareness:
Dealing with Stress and Anxiety
Stress is part of being human, and it can help motivate us to get things done. We may sometimes feel anxious, and that’s normal too for a while. But, when we start to feel that way more than several weeks, or if it starts to interfere with home or work life, it’s time to reach out for help. Here are some things that can help manage stress before it gets to be too much.
If you or someone you know is experiencing mental illness, contact the NAMI HelpLine, Monday through Friday, 10 a.m.-8 p.m., ET at 1-800-950-NAMI (6264) or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Volunteers answer questions, offer support and provide practical next steps. The resources on this page also provide information to address many needs and concerns.
