Fort Lauderdale, FL - In an effort to provide ongoing education to clients and the public, The Source Addiction Treatment Center regularly publishes informative articles on their website. They strive to be a source of reliable up-to-date information on topics related to substance abuse and behavioral health.
In light of Mental Health Awareness Month, The Source recently published, “The Connection Between Mental Health and Addiction,” to help people understand how these conditions influence one another. During Mental Health Awareness Month, individuals and organizations work together to provide much-needed education to the public and help end the stigma that’s often associated with mental health disorders and addiction.
The article posted by The Source serves as a reminder to those struggling with mental health or substance use that they are not alone. In fact, roughly 17.5 million Americans struggle with both addiction and mental illness. The need for policies and resources to support addicts and their families is greater than ever. The Source continually advocates for those they serve and works with the community to increase access to quality care.
The National Alliance on Mental Illnesses is promoting this year’s Mental Health Awareness Month theme, “You Are Not Alone” to further reinforce the idea that there are resources and support available for those who need them. In fact, people can share their stories and read the stories of others by using the hashtag #notalone on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter.
In honor of this year’s awareness month, NAMI is also holding nationwide virtual walks providing an opportunity for participants to show support in their community.
