An estimated 26.2 percent of Americans ages 18 and older — about one in four adults —suffer from a diagnosable mental disorder in a given year
Even though early intervention increases functionality, nearly half of the people experiencing symptoms of a mental illness never seek treatment due to lack of mental health education, stigma, access to care
For every 2 people that are killed by homicide, there are 5 people that take their own life by completing suicide - Suicide is preventable through MHL
Suicide is the second leading cause of death for individuals aged 18-34

People who have experienced Mental Health Education with us:
"It does not matter if you lead your family, a business, your church group, or a community organization. Becky customized a brief introductory seminar for our women's group to speak about women's self-care and overall well-being. She is an excellent speaker to discuss Mental health issues, creating a plan and blueprint for learning and opening up the conversation. I would recommend Becky as a guest speaker to open up the conversation about "Mental Health" - Becky breaks down the stigma"
