September 17: NAMIWalks – Silicon Valley

One in 5 Americans, or nearly 60 million people across all racial, ethnic, age, religious and economic groups, face the day-to-day reality of living with a mental health condition. Mental illness affects everyone.

Fifty percent of mental health conditions begin by age 14 and 75 percent of mental health conditions develop by age 24. Yet fewer than one-third of adults and one-half of children with a mental health condition receive NAMIWalkservices and treatment in a given year.

The result of this public health failure is often tragic: Suicide is the second leading cause of death in youth and young adults ages 15 to 24. Early engagement and support are crucial to improving outcomes and increasing the promise of recovery.
