those who need it. But, too often we're reluctant to ask the right questions, or to express our concern or support. This campaign is about helping people find an easier way to talk about this critical component of our total health."

According to Rickman Jones, while 70-90 percent of mental health diagnoses are treatable, data shows that fewer than half of the people who experience these mental health challenges actually seek treatment.

"There are so many things we can do to promote good mental health in our children, starting when they are infants, to encourage and support their social and emotional development," said Barbara Shaw, Director of the Illinois Violence Prevention Authority and Chair of the Illinois Children's Mental Health Partnership. "This campaign urges parents and caregivers to initiate conversations about their child's social and emotional development with people they trust, such as their pediatrician, and to ask for help when they need it."

The Say it out loud campaign is based on current research indicating that the best way to address the misperceptions associated with mental illnesses is by giving people the opportunity to engage with one another on the subject in a meaningful way and to share their experiences and knowledge. Thus, the campaign is using the stories of real people in advertisements being distributed to newspapers and radio stations in every county of the state, and through videos featured on the campaign's new Web site, http://www.mentalhealthillinois.org. The campaign also promotes a new toll-free telephone line providing access to mental health resources and referrals through the Illinois Mental Health Collaborative for Access and Choice (866-359-7953 or 866-880-4459 TTY).

The campaign describes five steps that every Illinois resident can take to help promote good mental health for themselves and the people they care about: <
