With the subject of mental illness in the news due to tragedies such as mass shootings, family members of people with mental illness are articles detailing how difficult and scary it can be, how they can be at a loss on how to act when a loved one is having a mental health crisis.
The Treatment Advocacy Center is dedicated to the timely and effective treatment of severe mental illness. They have just released a wonderful and easy-to-use app for smart phones to assist people during mental health crises– how to respond to someone who is having one, how to talk to 911 operators, vocabulary, and much more. It is a lot of information packed into such an accessible app.
We hope that you will help the Treatment Advocacy Center spread the word about their new app. You can click on this link to see the app and download it on your phone.
