A federal survey found that more than 45 million U.S. adults had some form of mental illness in 2011.
Tragedies strike, and the nation turns its attention to mental illness. But this is a conversation that needs to go deeper and last longer. KPCC journalists want listeners to lead the conversation. Tell us: How has mental illness affected your life?
If you work or live with mental illness (whether you or a loved one received the diagnosis), help shape KPCC's understanding of these issues by sharing your insights and experiences.
It's confidential and a KPCC journalist will reply by email. Nothing you share is aired or published without your permission. We are, however, looking for a few people to interview, so if you're interested in sharing your experience publicly, please use the permission buttons below to let us know.
