From WLBT: Mental Health Week raises awareness, promotes importance of seeking help

JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) – Almost half of adults in this country will experience a mental illness during their lifetime.

In fact, it affects everyone directly or indirectly through family, friends or even coworkers.

This past week, the country focused on raising awareness and promoting the importance of getting help – including right here in Mississippi.

Marcus Ginn is a board member with The National Alliance on Mental Illness. He knows all too well about how a mental health condition can have major impacts.

“My father died by suicide and after that there was a period where I wanted to get support,” Ginn said. “I got into a connection group and I heard other people just like me talking about mental illness and it made me feel very comfortable and wanting to help others.”
