Mental illness is a serious medical illness that affects over 57 million Americans – about one in four people – yet there is still a real stigma associated with it. This stigma can create an environment where people do not seek help. In fact, only one-third of Americans living with mental illness receive treatment. Mike Fitzpatrick, Executive Director of NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness), joined Jerry Franz, host of Health Matters at Work® podcast series, to talk about what NAMI is doing to educate, serve and advocate for people impacted by mental illness.
