National Depression Screening Day

Personalized Cause

Today is National Depression Screening Day, held annually during Mental Illness Awareness Week in October!

National Depression Screening Day is an annual campaign that raises awareness about mood disorders, such as depression, and provides the public with free, anonymous mental health screenings at helpyourselfhelpothers.org.

This year, the campaign will focus on suicide prevention. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the suicide rate in the United States increased 24 percent from 1999 to 2014, making it the highest it has been in decades. In response, Screening for Mental Health developed stopasuicide.org, a resource that provides the public with information on the warning signs of suicide and the action steps to take to save a life.

We believe that everyone has the power to reduce the suicide rate by speaking about suicide, knowing how to respond when they notice the warning signs, and taking action to get someone the help they need.

Minority Mental Health Awareness Month

Personalized Cause

July is Minority Mental Health Month!

Minority Mental Health Month is dedicated to creating awareness and discussion about mental health in minority communities in order to increase their access to mental health care and treatment. We know mental illness affects everyone despite their differences, so we want everyone to work towards equality among mental health care.

Here are 10 facts about Minority Mental Health to get you thinking:

  1. Teenage Latinas are more likely to die by suicide than African American and white, non-Hispanic female students.

  2. Less than 1 in 11 Latinos with mental disorders contact mental health care specialists.

  3. In 2009, suicide was the second leading cause of death for American Indian/Alaska Natives between the ages of 10 and 34.

  4. LGB youth are 4 times more likely to attempt suicide compared to their straight peers.

  5. Native American males ages 15-24 account for 64 percent of all suicides among Native Americans.

  6. Among women aged 15-24, Asian American females have the highest suicide rates across all racial/ethnic groups.

  7. In a 2006 study, suicide was cited as the third leading cause of death for African Americans ages 15-19.

  8. Only 1 out of 3 African Americans who need mental health care receive it.

  9. In 2012, 14 percent of American Indians and Alaska Natives age 18-plus had co-occurring mental and substance use disorders.

  10. Treating people affected would greatly reduce these numbers, and create happier, healthier communities.
