This is Mental Illness Awareness Week.

Next we hear from Mick Fiocchi, President of the National Alliance on Mental Illness-Northern Lakes chapter. Fiocchi says a surprisingly large number of people have some form of mental illness, but many are afraid to seek treatment...

Fiocchi says there are providers in the area that will provide help, including a number of providers not affiliated with large organizations. He says the main thing to remember is to just start seeking help if you are having problems. He says the earlier you seek treatment the better off you will be.
