Mental Health Month 2014
May is Mental Health Month and Thresholds is going lime green, the official color of mental health awareness. We’re observing Mental Health Month with special topics on mental health on Facebook and Twitter throughout the month.
Statistics show 1 in 4 persons experiences a mental illness at one point in their life, but mental illness affects us all. Whether you have experienced a mental illness, or have a friend or family member who has experienced a mental illness, we all understand the debilitating effect it can have.
Thresholds is Illinois’ largest and oldest provider of recovery services for persons with mental illnesses. Thresholds supports thousands of those with mental illnesses through care, employment, advocacy, and housing. Thresholds assists and inspires people with mental illnesses to reclaim their lives.
