Issues & Impacts of Mental Illness in our Community. "Mental illnesses are more common than cancer, diabetes, or heart disease" (U.S. Surgeon General's Report). Do you know someone with a mental illness?
  • What is the picture of mental illness in Whatcom County?
  • How does law enforcement interface with mental health?
  • What diagnosis and treatment resources and exemplary programs are available in our community to serve individuals with mental illness?
