Did you know May is Mental Health Awareness month? It is a time for us to raise awareness of those living with a mental or behavioral health issue, and to help reduce the stigma that people experience.

At NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) we think it is important to measure how common mental illness is so we can understand its physical, social and financial impact. It is also important to show that no one is alone.

Desiree Irvin is th executive director for NAMI York Adams Counties PA, member of the Healthy Adams County Behavioral Health Task Force.
