Now, more than ever before, our communities need programs like be nice.
Every one of us will be touched by mental illness regardless of age, race, or gender. In fact, 1 in 4 adults will experience mental illness in their lifetime. Fifty percent of the children who experience mental illness begin to show signs and symptoms by age 14. Together, we can change this.
Together, we can build a community of people educated to recognize the signs of mental illness and empowered to take action for themselves or others. School by school, business by business, state by state, we can equip individuals across the country with a plan to secure resources and save lives.
