Mental illness affects approximately eight million Americans and is probably more misunderstood than any other illness today. Targeting people of all ages, cultures, races and socioeconomic groups, it can strike the postpartum woman, the business executive or the nursing home resident. Often, the stigma attached is as painful as the symptoms.
