Taylor, MD, senior vice president and chief of behavioral medicine at University Health System, wrote, “The US Surgeon General has reported that stigma is a major barrier to people seeking help when they need it.” For that reason, Mental Illness Awareness Week (Oct. 6-12) “is so important.” Taylor concluded that when it comes to awareness of mental illness, “the more people know, the better they can help themselves or their loved ones to get the support they need.”
