May is Mental Health Awareness Month

As committed mental health providers at Humanim, we hope this month brings awareness to a health issue that affects millions of Americans and their families each year. Help us advocate for mental health awareness, by learning some facts about the prevalence and impact of mental illness!

  • Approximately 1 in 5 adults in the U.S.—43.8 million, or 18.5%—experiences mental illness in a given year.
  • Approximately 1 in 25 adults in the U.S.—10 million, or 4.2%—experiences a serious mental illness in a given year that substantially interferes with or limits one or more major life activities.
  • Half of all chronic mental illness begins by age 14; three-quarters by age 24. Despite effective treatment, there are long delays—sometimes decades—between the first appearance of symptoms and when people get help.
  • Serious mental illness costs America $193.2 billion in lost earnings per year.
  • Mood disorders, including major depression, dysthymic disorder and bipolar disorder, are the third most common cause of hospitalization in the U.S. for both youth and adults aged 18–44

Humanim Honored by Associated Black Charities

Humanim is proud to be honored by Associated Black Charities this year at their annual gala on June 11th, for its work with racial equity. Our journey to better understand structural racism and the way it impacts economic outcomes for African Americans began over 5 years ago, shortly after opening our Baltimore headquarters at the American Brewery. We are committed to continuing our work in this area, with guidance from our Board and the ABC. Stay tuned for upcoming events highlighting our ongoing efforts to make Humanim a leader in inclusiveness and racial equity.
