Speak Up For Your Mental Health

Mental health is just as important as someone’s physical health. Depression and other mental health issues are common, and like physical illnesses they need to be treated. Mental health issues also can affect a person’s thinking, feelings, mood, how they relate to others, and even how they function throughout the day. However, depression is a serious condition — and it is helpful to know the signs and symptoms.

Speak Up™ For Your Mental Health, a patient safety campaign from The Joint Commission, is designed to educate patients on how to advocate for themselves and their mental health.
