Mental health disorders strike millions of Americans each year, regardless of race, color, gender, age and socioeconomic status. Some disorders are mild, while others are more disabling and require intensive management and care. It is vital that Americans know that help is available. According to the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), as many as eight in 10 people suffering from mental disorders can effectively return to normal, productive lives if they receive appropriate treatment. This treatment is readily available through our services.
