Mental Illness Awareness Week

The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) started Mental Illness Awareness Week in 1979, and it was officially adopted by Congress in 1990. Usually held in one of the first two weeks in October, Mental Illness Awareness Week seeks to inform the public about severe mental illnesses, such as bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, and major depression.

Did you know that 5-8% of the adult population in the United States will suffer from depression?  This week furthers NAMI’s overall mission – to provide accurate information, inform people of current public policy issues, and reduce the stigma given to individuals diagnosed with mental illnesses.

During the week events are held by local and national programs including National Depression Screening Day.  This is a time that anyone is welcome to come and take a quick test to see if they may need treatment or just go to ask questions to become a better supporter.  Screening events are held in shopping malls, supermarkets and many other public places that are easily accessible to the majority of the public.

ePromos has a variety of promotional products to help your business support this important cause. You can give out promotional brain shaped stress ball to remind your recipients of the importance of the mental health.  If you are holding a Mental Health Screening Day event you can pass out the very popular customizable awareness bracelets to draw attention to the cause and drive people to be aware of the problem as a thank you gift.

For any questions or ideas, call an ePromos sales associate today!
