New portal serves as a resource for those with a mental illness.
The Obama administration has unveiled a new government website specifically for mental health.
Mentalhealth.gov was inaugurated Monday, the same day the National Conference on Mental Health was held at the White House.
The website is a new portal for people with a mental illness or those who simply want to learn more about mental health.
It describes in very specific details what mental health is and what are some of the specific illnesses.
It also debunks myths and gives visitors the non-bias facts about mental health as well as provides resources for people with a mental illness.
For those who simply want to become involved with helping others with a mental illness, there is also a place on the site where you can go to get started.
“Too many Americans who struggle with mental health illnesses are still suffering in silence rather than seeking help, and we need to see it that men and women who would never hesitate to go see a doctor if they had a broken arm or came down with the flu, that they have the same attitude when it comes to their mental health,” said President Obama in the conference’s opening remarks.
