Every May since the mid-1900s, Mental Health Month has served as a time to help spread awareness and reduce stigma surrounding mental health and addiction. Mental Health America has chosen “Back to Basics” as this year’s theme. In this spirit, we’ve put together information to help you understand common mental health conditions, where to find resources, and how to find treatment.
What are some common mental health disorders?
One in every five U.S. adults will experience a mental illness each year, but due to stigma, many of these people feel alone and isolated. There is a wide range of mental health disorders, but some of the most common are:
- Anxiety disorders and OCD
- Depression and other mood disorders
- Trauma and PTSD
- Eating disorders
Where can I find resources to better understand mental illnesses?
NAMI or more specialized organizations like the IOCDF offer good resources and information to better understand mental health. At Rogers, we’ve also assembled resources in a helpful hub that allows you to browse by condition and type of resource, which includes fact sheets, videos, blogs, podcasts, and more.
Where can people find help for their mental health?
When people think of therapy, they typically imagine an outpatient setting where you see a therapist about one day a week. When traditional therapy isn’t enough, Rogers offers four distinct levels of care that provides a higher dosage of therapy. Rogers is a nationally recognized leader in mental health and addiction treatment. With more than 20 locations across the United States, Rogers helps thousands each year to rise above the challenges of mental illness.
We also offer online quizzes to help provide possible relief. While the results are not an official diagnosis, it could be a great next step to finding treatment. Our quizzes include:
