“President Obama delivers remarks to open the National Conference on Mental Health at the White House, part of the Administration’s effort to launch a national conversation to increase understanding and awareness about mental health.”

Highlights:

You are not alone.

End Stigma.

Why do we whisper about mental health issues?

We all know someone.

Don’t suffer in silence.

Would you get medical attention if you broke an arm?

Suicide is preventable – treatable mental illness.

WE can do something.

Treatment is available and effective.

Hope.

1. Recognize mental health in our children (less than 40% of people receive treatment)
