Assembly District 30 Mental Health Resources


Mental Illness has long been associated with negative stereotypes and misinformation. However, there is a growing understanding that mental health is just as important as physical health. Mental health disorders do not discriminate and can affect anyone. In fact, about 50% of the U.S. adult population will use mental health services at some point in their life. Mental health services are beneficial for anyone who seeks help in coping with traumatic life events, treating health conditions, and learning healthy problem solving techniques. These services can be vital in helping people regain their sense of self and ability to go about their daily lives.  If you or someone you know could benefit from mental health services, check out these resources available to you:
