-1 in 6 youth aged 6-17 experience a mental health condition each year?
-fewer than half of the adults in the US who experience mental illness get the help they need in a given year?
-suicide is the 2nd leading cause of death in people aged 10-34 and 10th leading cause of death overall in the US?

Stigma and discrimination, cost of mental health care, appointment availability and lack of transportation are commonly cited barriers to treatment. But they shouldn’t be.
Here at Salveo Direct Care, we can help in the fight to break some of these barriers. By offering affordable memberships and easy appointment availability, you can establish care with one of our #StigmaFree direct primary care physicians and address your mental health needs.
Most importantly, we want you to know that you are #NotAlone. Take the #StigmaFree pledge with us today (I just did!), and let’s work together to make this world a happier and more inclusive place to live and thrive.
