WHO urging individuals battling mental health problems to seek support from their families

For approximately one in 25 adults in the nation, a serious mental illness dramatically affects the person's ability to perform major life activities.

As with other serious illnesses, mental illness is not your fault or that of the people around you, but widespread misunderstandings about mental illness remain.

An estimated 26 percent of homeless adults in the nation who stay in shelters live with serious mental illness, and a little more than 50% of adults who experience a substance use disorder also have a co-occurring mental illness. Many people don't seek treatment or remain unaware that their symptoms could be connected to a mental health condition.

"They should directly ask that person: are they thinking of killing themselves?" These misperceptions add to the challenges of living with a mental health condition. People with mental health conditions can and do pursue higher education, succeed in careers, make friends and have relationships.

Louisiana doesn't have many long-term living facilities for people with mental illness.
