New York, NY (PRWEB) March 01, 2017
Approximately 1 in 5 adults in the U.S.—43.8 million people—experience a mental illness in a given year. Eating disorders, anxiety, and depression are among the most prominent mental health disorders in America, commonly co-occurring with one another. Of these illnesses, eating disorders have the highest mortality rate of any mental health disorder—over 30 million men and women suffer from a given illness a year. Mediaplanet's Road to Recovery campaign aims to spread the message that with treatment, all of these mental health illnesses are beatable.
This being known, it has become crucial to educate the public and all those who are silently suffering alerting them to the severity of the illness and showing that recovery is possible. From focusing on the best parts of yourself in Iskra Lawrence’s “Mirror Challenge” to educating the public about the Mental Health industry, “Road to Recovery” aims to provide the necessary tools and resources to beat your mental health disorder.
