About "Living with Mental Illness"
According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), 1 in 5 adults in the U.S. experiences mental illness every year. WQED Multimedia's "Living With Mental Illness" campaign is an ongoing commitment to explore various aspects of mental health, examine different illnesses, focus on new research and treatment, and introduce people who are living with mental illness. The multi-platform project is intended to raise awareness, showcase positive outcomes - and above all - end stigma. WQED thanks NAMI Southwestern Pennsylvania and Mental Health America (link) for their guidance, as well as others who took part in the project and courageously shared their stories in the hope of helping others.
