Strike a Chord: Combating Mental Illness Stereotypes
A mental illness is a medical condition that causes mild to severe disturbances in thinking, perception and behavior. Recovery is possible. But there are many misconceptions about mental illness that can lead to a variety of problems, like trouble finding work or housing.
