The City of Edgewater is dedicated to improving the health and wellbeing of its citizens by ending stigma and focusing on the integrated role of mental health in all our lives. Good mental health is essential to the overall health and emotional wellbeing of all children, youth, adults and families; and promotes a healthy community. One in five people in our communities experience a mental health condition each year. Increased focus on the prevention of mental health conditions and substance use disorders among children and adolescents through screening and early intervention helps improve lives. The stigma against mental health conditions prevents many people from accessing care and when mental health problems are detected early and treated, people can recover and maintain a healthy and independent life.
