Summary, etc.: More than fifty million people a year are diagnosed with some form of mental illness. It spares no sex, race, age, ethnicity, or income level. Left untreated, mental disorders can devastate our families and communities. Family members and friends are often the first to realize when someone they love has a problem, but it is hard to know how to help or where to turn. Our mental health "system" can feel like a bewildering and frustrating maze. How can you tell that someone has a mental illness? What are the first and best steps to take? Where do you go to find the right care?
