May is Mental Health Awareness Month

According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), one in five Americans is affected by mental health conditions. NAMI says, “Stigma is toxic to their mental health because it creates an environment of shame, fear and silence that prevents many people from seeking help and treatment. The perception of mental illness won’t change unless we act to change it.”

At LifeWorks NW, we work everyday to ensure mental health and addiction are Something to Talk About. We meet people where they are and walk with them through whatever they need to face to help them restore mind, body and spirit.

Year-round, and even more so during Mental Health Awareness month, we encourage you to reach out, make connections and allow voices to break through stigma, so everyone can feel free to access the care they need to be well.

If you or someone you know needs help, call us to learn more about our services: 503.645.9010.
