Mental Health Month, and this year's theme - Life With a Mental Illness - is being described as a call to action aimed at encouraging people to share what the experience of mental illness feels like in order to help others who may be struggling to explain what they are going through, encourage others to recognize symptoms earlier, and to reduce stigma. The hope is that this campaign will help people be more comfortable in seeking the help they need.
