Monday is World Mental Health Day

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — Monday marks World Mental Health Day, a day for raising awareness and mobilizing efforts to support mental health.

Nine out of 10 adults think the U.S. is in a mental health crisis, according to a CNN/Kaiser Family Foundation poll.

Of all the types of disorders, anxiety is the most common among Americans, affecting 19% of the population, according to the National Alliance on Mental Illness.

World Mental Health Day is a chance to talk about mental health in general, how we need to look after it, and how important it is to talk about things and get help if you are struggling.

Some ways to observe the day include practicing self-care, sharing your feelings with loved ones and seeking proper treatment if needed.
