One in five Tennesseans will be affected by mental illness this year; however, nearly two thirds of those struggling with a diagnosable condition do not get the treatment and support that would help them recover.
Most people suffer unnecessarily from multiple episodes of mental illness, for 10-12 years from start of their symptoms until diagnosis and start of treatment.
Do not let this treatment delay happen to you or someone you care about!
Screenings provide a quick, free, and anonymous way to identify whether you may be experiencing symptoms commonly associated with an illness and determine whether follow up with a professional is recommended.
A simple screening for Depression helped my daughter realize she was suffering from depression and probably had been depressed for a long time. She did the right thing, got help, and now I have my daughter back!
