It's Mental Health Week, and we're kicking off a special weeklong series on Northland Morning called "Change Your Mind: Living with Mental Illness." 

One out of every four people you know could experience a mental health problem in their lifetime.  Few things are as important to recovery from a physical - or mental illness - as family and societal support.  But as an "invisible disability" - because you may not "look sick" to others ... sometimes that support is lacking.

Special mental health reporting this week on "Change Your Mind: Living with Mental Illness" is provided by KUMD, in partnership with with the Human Development Center, Miller-Dwan Foundation and the St. Luke’s Foundation.
