    Breaking the Silence and Stigma of Mental Illness

    A mental illness is a medical condition that disrupts a person’s thinking, feeling, mood, ability to relate to others and daily functioning. Just as diabetes is a disorder of the pancreas, mental illnesses are medical conditions that often result in a diminished capacity for coping with the ordinary demands of life.

    Serious mental illnesses include major depression, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), panic disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and borderline personality disorder.  The good news about mental illness is that recovery is possible.

     

    Mental illnesses can affect persons of any age, race, religion or income. Mental illnesses are not the result of personal weakness, lack of character or poor upbringing. Mental illnesses are treatable.

    Most people diagnosed with a serious mental illness can experience relief from their symptoms by actively participating in an individual treatment plan.

    • Do What’s Right is an interactive phone app designed to allow Davenport Citizens to anonymously report information that is seen or heard, allowing police to take action and prevent acts of violence before they happen.  Anyone can use this app to report a person who may be thinking about hurting themselves.  Based on the anonymous tip received, police can do a “wellness” check to ensure the person is safe, and intervene if they are not.
