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.
