May is National Mental Health Awareness Month, and Family Institute expert clinicians are available to comment on the wide variety of topics and issues that pertain to the month. This year’s Mental Health Awareness Month Theme is “before stage four” (#B4Stage4) in an effort to highlight preventative methods people can take for their mental health—the same way they might for their physical health.
The Family Institute takes an integrated, systemic approach to mental health treatment—one that focuses on the entire individual. Our expert staff is uniquely positioned to comment on the preventative aspects of mental health treatment—from anxiety to depression, from marriage strains to parenting conflicts—because of the truly integrated nature of our work.
To speak to an expert clinician about mental illness symptoms, prevention, or about National Mental Health Awareness Month, please contact Institute Director of Public Relations Cyndi Schu at firstname.lastname@example.org or 312-609-5300 ext. 483.
