May is Mental Health Month

Cure Stigma


Each year millions of Americans face the reality of living with a mental illness. During May, we are raising awareness of mental health. Each year we fight stigma, provide support, educate the public and advocate for policies that support people with mental illness and their families.

The theme of 2018 Mental Health Month is "CureStigma".

Why this cause is important: One in 5 Americans is affected by mental health conditions. Stigma is toxic to their mental health because it creates an environment of shame, fear and silence that prevents many people from seeking help and treatment. The perception of mental illness won’t change unless we act to change it. Stigma is 100% curable. Compassion, empathy and understanding are the antidote. Your voice can spread the cure.

Help is Now a Text Message Away

Ohio is making it easier for individuals who are experiencing a stressful situation to find immediate help, 24/7 with the launch of a free, confidential, statewide Crisis Text Line. Any Ohio resident who needs help coping with a crisis can now text the keyword “4hope” to 741741 to be connected to a crisis counselor. Specialists are on stand-by to provide a personal response and information on a range of issues, including: suicidal thoughts, bullying, depression, self-harm, and more. The specialist helps the user stay safe and healthy with effective, secure support. The crisis text line is funded by the Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services and the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities.

Providing hope and help...

All of us know someone whose life has been touched by a mental health concern or substance abuse. In fact, one out of four Americans will experience a mental health concern during his or her lifetime. Mental illnesses are biologically based brain disorders. They cannot be overcome through willpower and are not related to a person's character or intelligence. They are medical conditions that disrupt a person's thinking, feeling, mood, daily functioning and ability to relate to others.

Addiction involves craving for something intensely, loss of control over its use, and continuing involvement with it despite adverse consequences. Addiction changes the brain, first by subverting the way it registers pleasure and then by corrupting other normal drives such as learning and motivation. Although breaking an addiction is tough, it can be done.  Nearly 23 million Americans—almost one in 10—are addicted to alcohol or other drugs.

Fortunately, there is hope and help for people, thanks to the Trumbull County Mental Health and Recovery Board and its partner agencies.  The Trumbull County Mental Health and Recovery Board plans, funds, monitors, and evaluates mental health and substance abuse services in Trumbull County, Ohio.  For 48 years we have ensured that a safety net of services is available for all our residents.
