Hillcrest Recognizes Employees during Mental Health Awareness Week

Mental Health Awareness Week provides an opportunity to not only highlight various mental illnesses that affect children and adults, but also to recognize the providers and staff who work every day to treat patients and improve outcomes. Mental illness is more widespread than many of us might realize. One out of every four adults will experience serious mental illness in their lifetime, ranging from depression to severe anxiety and schizophrenia. Treating mental illness does not often take a linear path, but requires a combination of therapies, medications and support systems.
