"Mental illnesses are shockingly common; they affect almost every American family. It can happen to a child, a brother, a grandparent, or a co-worker. It can happen to someone from any background… It can occur at any stage of life, from childhood to old age. No community is unaffected by mental illnesses; no school or workplace is untouched."
