Statistics vary, but as many as 1 in every 8 American adults will struggle with mental illness at some point during life. But unlike a cold or the flu, many mental illnesses
such as depression, anxiety, bi-polar, or schizophrenia are less understood by regular physicians, family members, or even the individual suffering from it.
Admitting to mental illness can also make an individual feel embarassed, treated differently, or even ostracized by friends or loved ones. Seeking help can feel confusing or be seen as a sign of weakness.
But Beacon Light Behavioral Health System can help. We provide several outpatient programs for adults seeking the path to recovery from mental illness.
