Wisconsin Officials Create Special Website for People with Mental Health Issues


The most common mental health issues for all people are PTSD, depression, anxiety disorders and substance abuse.

MHA offers a variety of resources for individuals at risk or now diagnosed with a mental illness, including prevention services, mental health assessments, integrated care and more. Sometimes the most refreshing thing in the world to hear is just "I would love to meet you, but I'm just feeling really depressed/anxious/shit". Often simply offering to listen or support a friend or family member without judgement can be the catalyst for significant change, enabling steps to transform lives for the better. Furthermore, 82% of these strategies now include mental health, with a further 15% of employers saying they plan to add mental health initiatives to their strategy in 2017.

Brooke said she wants people to be aware that mental illness is all around us and it is treatable. The County's Mobile Health Van is now out providing screenings specifically for mental health issues. It's a serious issue that costs America $193 billion in lost earnings annually, according to the National Alliance on Mental Illness. "There's this sense that it's just a one-name-fits-everybody, or one-title-fits-everybody". This number could increase if the American Healthcare Act (AHCA) is signed into law; the AHCA would give health insurance companies the right to increase premiums for enrollees needing mental health and addiction services. The center opened earlier this year.

People in the lowest income bracket, earning less than £1200 a month, were more likely to have suffered mental ill-health than those in the highest income bracket, earning more than £3701 a month.

Their goal is to consistently deliver quality, evidence-based treatment using a program-centered approach meant to reach beyond the typical crisis stabilization model commonly used throughout the industry, said Denise Draper, director of clinical services at Oakwood. The social media giant announced the launch of its new #HereForYou campaign, which shows how the platform can be used to battle mental illness. Constant stress can make it hard to perform at work and lead to anxiety and depression.

Even people who possess that awareness may deny the problem. Their goal is to help individuals achieve recovery. It's a morbid point to make, but it makes flawless sense that we, as a community, struggle disproportionately.

To raise awareness of mental ill health, tackle the stigma associated with the condition, and to support colleagues, staff within the organisation have received Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) training.

In addition to bringing more inpatient beds to Oklahoma, Oakwood offers a full continuum of care including a partial hospitalization program, intensive outpatient program and outpatient medication management.
