ONE IN FOUR FAMILIES WILL BE IMPACTED BY MENTAL ILLNESS
Mental illness is second only to heart disease as the leading cause of disability in this country yet there is a deafening silence about it in our schools. Serious mental illnesses often begin developing between the ages of 15 and 24, yet most high school students graduate from high school without ever having had one lesson in mental health. As a result, young people are often ill equipped to recognize the symptoms of mental illness. Early diagnosis and treatment is currently thought to be one of the most important factors for a positive prognosis and recovery. That is why education is so important.
Our message is a message of hope!
The Jordan Binion Project believes in the importance of educating youth about mental illness. Our mission is to provide education about the early warning signs of developing a mental illness, to remove the stigma that is associated with mental illness in our society and to provide hope for a positive future for those youth impacted by mental illness.
