Mental health disorders are common in the United States, with one in five adults having a mental disorder in any given year. This is equivalent to 43.8 million people. Mental health disorders often start in adolescence, with half of all disorders beginning by age 14. The greatest challenge in coping with a mental illness is finding the right kind of treatment and support to meet your needs. Entering and accessing mental health services for the first time can be overwhelming. Identifying the right treatment is often a trial and error process.
CONNECT would like to thank the Park City Community Foundation, the Promontory Foundation, and Summit County for helping underwrite the costs of this project and for their support of the Summit County community.
