Mental Health
Although most of us don’t think about it much, mental health impacts all of our lives.  How we think, feel and react to everyday life experiences and the ability to enjoy our lives is an important gauge for measuring one’s mental health.  With the daily stresses on our lives, each of us lives with continual threats to our mental health.  It is estimated that the USA, with 57.7 million in a given year, has the highest incidence of people diagnosed with mental health problems.

The term mental illness refers to a wide range of mental disorders that are diagnosed by mental health professionals or other trained health care workers.  Many individuals with mental illnesses can significantly reduce symptoms and improve their quality of life with a combination of professional supports including pharmacological and psychosocial strategies.

Mental health programs and mental health training offering appropriate medication, in combination with mental health therapy may drastically reduce the impact of a serious mental illness. Early diagnosis and treatment that includes an array of services tailored to the individual can also help signficantly.  Therefore, it is crucial for mental health professionals to continually enhance their expertise in developing strategies to manage the illnesses process.  For the service provider and the person with the mental health issue, information and education about mental health and illness is important.  Program Development Associates acknowledges this need by offering information, DVDs, and training resources in the Mental Health Store and providing information, education and awareness on a variety of mental health topics.
