In any given year, an astonishing 1 in 5 Americans will face mental illness. Anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in the U.S., with more than 40 million lives affected. Additionally, about 16 million have major depression. But despite the prevalence of mental health conditions, only about a third of Americans seek treatment. Just as other illnesses – such as high blood pressure or diabetes – are treatable and manageable, so too are mental health issues.

That’s why May has been designated as Mental Health Awareness Month, an observance developed to raise awareness of mental health issues and the stigma attached to them. This month and every month, we take the time to thank you, our valued provider network, for all that you do.

Our entire focus is on mental and behavioral health, because that’s all we do – not just during the month of May but year round. It’s about starting conversations that matter with those who matter.

We encourage you to join us and start a conversation about well-being during #MentalHealthAwarenessMonth. How do you #Thrive? Find us on social media and share your answer along with our graphic to start a conversation on how to #BeWell.
