Mental Health in Schools

Did you know that over 300,000 people in Sacramento county are living with mental illness?  In fact, one in five adults will experience a diagnosable mental illness during their lifetime.  It’s back to school season which means families and students are headed back to the classroom.  Many students will be experiencing a new school, full of stressful unknowns.  The pressure to perform well academically, make new friends, handle heavy homework loads and extra curriculars can take a real toll on a student’s mental health.  The "Mental Illness: It’s not always what you think" project works to reduce stigma, promote mental health and inspire hope for those living with mental illness in Sacramento County.

Regina Bryan, BSW, a member of the project’s Stop Stigma Speakers Bureau and a recent Sacramento State graduate, shares her personal experience
