difference through media,” said Brian Dyak, President & CEO, Entertainment Industries Council, Inc.

“One in four U.S. adults experiences a mental health disorder in a given year, while only 25 percent of those people will get the help they need. This is especially true in Latino communities where people tend to keep their personal lives private due to cultural factors, immigration status or concerns about the family’s reputation. The media can play a tremendous role to help change those attitudes. The Spanish and English language materials released today can help the media play a part in reducing the stigma of mental illness, which prevents people from seeking help,” said California Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg.

“The facts are clear: Prevention and Early Intervention programs make a life-saving difference—giving teens and families the tools to reduce suicide, breaking down social and cultural barriers that deter people from getting help, and connecting young people with resources to help with the most challenging time in their lives. These TEAM Up resources can help the Spanish language media play an important role in prevention and early intervention,” commented Dr. Wayne Clark, president, California Mental Health Services Authority.

TEAM Up resources are centered on the tenet of communicating about the entire person as someone with a disorder not as a person defined by a disorder.
