Media Resources

Millions of people in the U.S. are affected by mental illness each year. It’s important to measure how common mental illness is, so we can understand its physical, social and financial impact — and so we can show that no one is alone. These available resources are powerful tools for raising public awareness, stigma-busting and advocating for better health care.
