Focus on Mental Health

Prior to the Pandemic (2019),
1 in 5 adults in the U.S. lived with Mental illness?
That's 51.5 million people. 

A growing percentage of youth in the U.S. live with major depression. Over 60% of youth with major depression do not receive any mental health treatment. 

Through this month's Be the Change box, Mercantile for Good is helping you give back to two important nonprofits addressing the mental health challenges our country is currently facing.
