Mental Health Resources

For many years, mental health problems have been silenced, downplayed, and ignored. The perception that it is not something to be discussed has resulted in a number of common myths and misconceptions about what mental health is and how it manifests. Further, the silence around mental health issues leads to problems like late or lack of diagnosis, lack of support for those who are struggling, and stigma.

The fact of the matter is that mental illness is very common and most of us likely know someone who is affected by it in some way, whether as a person suffering from depression, anxiety, eating disorder, and many others, or a caregiver supporting someone struggling with mental health problems.

At Vision, we are committed to opening up the conversation about mental health and illness. As such, we have implemented a number of partnerships, workshops, and conferences that will allow us to inform you, allow you to ask your questions, and ultimately to help change social perceptions of mental health problems.

A great resource for families and expecting families can be found at the following website:

20 Questions About Mental Health
