Welcome to the 2013 Campaign…
Mental Health First Aid AZ: A Community Call to ACTION!
Identify ● Connect ● Support
The purpose of this year's campaign is to reach communities across the state of Arizona through the 2013 Campaign – Mental Health First Aid Arizona. You may already know that one out of four people in the United States experience mental illness in their life time, and the sad news is that their life expectancy is often shortened on average by 25 years compared to the general population due to chronic health conditions. In Arizona, this health disparity is almost 32 years. One out of five children and adolescents suffer from severe behavioral health and emotional challenges. And, the early onset of mental illness is identified as early as 14 years of age. When left untreated they may develop serious mental illness and complex medical conditions later on in life. For these reasons, the focus of our campaign centers on three primary areas:
MENTAL HEALTH FIRST AID FOR YOUTH & ADULTS
Part I – Early identification of mental illness
Part II – Connect people to treatment and support
Part III – Advocate for resources and policies
Only when we join efforts with experts from the medical, media, civic, education, business and faith communities in support and sponsorship of Mental Health in Arizona will we have the collective impact that can make a difference. Our campaign purpose is to raise awareness about the importance of mental health and reduce the stigma associated with mental illness, with a goal of providing an opportunity - for each of us -to impact the lives of our family members, friends, coworkers, and especially the people we have not met yet who are still suffering in silence. Join us in this worthy cause to strengthen the health and wellness of our communities!
We are delighted you are with us and thank you for time, contributions and your heart!
