World Mental Health Day, Oct. 10, is a day to combat the stigma that mental

health struggles aren't real. Because they are.

 

Just in the U.S., about 1 in 5 adults experience mental illness annually,

according to the National Alliance on Mental Health. About 1 in 25 struggle

with a serious mental illness. Youth are the most affected - recent data

showed the teen suicide rate is rising.
