One in 17&#8722;about 13.6 million&#8722;live with a serious mental illness such as schizophrenia, major depression or bipolar disorder. Approximately 20 percent of youth ages 13 to 18 experience severe mental disorders in a given year. For ages 8 to 15, the estimate is 13 percent. Approximately 1.1 percent of American adults- about 2.4 million people-live with schizophrenia. Approximately 2.6 percent of American adults&#8722;6.1 million people&#8722;live with bipolar disorder.

Many people will say words like fear, depression, crazy, sick, etc. These words are often presented with negative connotations. The Healing Place, Inc., the Non-Profit arm of Just A Journey Counseling & Psychological Services, LLC, strives to break the stigma of Mental Illness by raising awareness and an understanding that there is NO health without Mental Health! Through our community based programs we provide convenient and effective individual, family and group behavioral health services to those who are often overlooked and or under-serviced in our communities. By donating to this campaign you will be partnering with us in the fight to break the stigma of Mental Illness. It is our goal that through these efforts, when asked "what words come to mind when you hear the words Mental Health" in the future, people will say "Hope, Healing, Peace, & Recovery!"
