TO PROCLAIM THE MONTH OF MAY 2001 AS MENTAL HEALTH MONTH IN SOUTH CAROLINA TO RAISE AWARENESS OF MENTAL HEALTH ILLNESSES AND THE CITIZENS OF OUR STATE WHO SUFFER FROM MENTAL ILLNESS.
Whereas, mental health is critical for the well-being and vitality of our families, businesses, and communities; and
Whereas, mental illness will strike one in five Americans in a given year regardless of age, gender, race, ethnicity, religion, or economic status; and
Whereas, one in five children suffers from a diagnosable mental or emotional disorder, and one in ten has a serious disorder which, if untreated, can lead to school failure, addiction, and even suicide; and
Whereas, mental disorders, collectively, make mental illness the most prevalent health problem in America today - more common than cancer, lung, and heart disease combined; and
Whereas, the South Carolina Department of Mental Health observes Mental Health Month each year in May to raise awareness of mental health, mental illnesses, and insurance discrimination against people with mental illnesses. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:
That the General Assembly of South Carolina herby proclaims the month of May 2001 as Mental Health Month in South Carolina and calls upon all citizens, government agencies, public and private institutions, businesses, and schools in our state to increase awareness and understanding of mental illnesses and the need for appropriate and accessible services for all people with mental illnesses.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the South Carolina Department of Mental Health in Columbia.
