SARASOTA – Around 1 in 5 adults experience mental illness in a given year according to NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness. For kids ages 13 – 18, the numbers are the same. Breaking the silence on mental illness is one of the ways NAMI hopes to better lives of people in the US diagnosed with a mental disorder. NAMI’s Vicki Hellerick visited our studio to talk about NAMI’s efforts during Mental Health Awareness Week.
