Mental Health

You can help the Delano Loretto Area United Way change the conversation around mental health in our communities. 

In times of crisis, like the one we face now, it’s especially important to support mental health. Studies show that one in five adults experience mental illness, yet less than half receive the support they need.

Many individuals do not seek mental health treatment because of a lack of resources or the feared stigma attached to mental illness. 

What You Can Do to Change the Conversation

The social distancing our community is practicing can lead to increased feelings of fear, anxiety, depression, boredom, anger, frustration, irritability and even stigmitization if you are sick or have been exposed to someone with COVID-19. Learn to recognize these feelings and reach out to family, friends or other people in your support network or a trained professional to talk about your mental health.
