Resources By Issue - Mental Health

Mental illness affects nearly all American families, and addressing this issue is vital to promoting the health of our communities.

After the tragic school shootings in Newtown, Conn., President Obama called for a national conversation to increase understanding and awareness of mental health. Everyday Democracy has worked with some key partners to help ensure that our community plays an important role in this effort.

These resources and stories come from our work in the National Dialogue for Mental Health, and it is our hope that they will inspire you to start a conversation on mental health in your own community.
