May is Mental Health Month. Mental illnesses affects one in five Americans each year. Being able to live a hopeful, healthy and happy lifestyle is possible whether one experiences a mental illness or just life’s daily hurdles.
Apart from Southwest Behavioral & Health Services, there are many resources that can provide assistance to individuals of all ages who have mental health illnesses. A great place to start is 2-1-1 Arizona, a community information database that provides not only professional and mental health resources, but also information for a variety of community resources.
Remember, there are always professional resources available.
