Recovering from mental illness with dignity
World Health Organization (WHO)
An estimated 350 million people are affected by depression around the world. Some 21 million are affected by schizophrenia. Despite this considerable burden, the stigmatization that is still associated with mental illness prevents many people from seeking help. In this short video, Charlene Sunkel, from South Africa, speaks of her experience of mental health services following a diagnosis of schizophrenia, and the challenges she had to overcome in her quest for an effective treatment and understanding of her condition. Gary Seery, from Ireland, explains how sport helped him to overcome depression.

What is mental health parity?
NAMI
For too long, people who need mental health and substance use care have been subjected to pervasive discrimination in health insurance.

Fewer Adults Smoking
Lee Memorial Health System
After a seven- year stall, the number of adult smokers dropped to 18% according the CDC. Still cigarettes are the leading cause of preventable illness and death. Doctors say the power to change, is within our grasp.
