Mental disorders are common in the United States and internationally.  An estimated 22 percent of Americans ages 18 and older (about 1 in 5 adults) suffer from a diagnosable mental disorder in a given year.  Eileen White is one of them.

Eileen,  diagnosed with seven mental disorders, is a believer in therapy and in the support of others.  “Yes, therapy is a big part of my recovery,” Eileen tells KSOO Radio.  “The support of friends and family is just as important.  It’s also beneficial to join a support group that includes others who are suffering from some form of mental illness.”

Eileen says she’s not ‘cured’ of the mental health disorders. “I have my ups and downs just like everyone else.  Although I’ve been depressed for weeks at a time—reaching out to others has been a great help.  I have not met a single person in a hospital or group home who is not able to reach their personal best with proper support and treatment.  Getting involved in advocacy and organizations such as NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) can point one in the direction of recovery.”
