Feeling lost and don't know what all of this is about?

If you had the chance to help someone with a mental illness, how many people would you help?

One? Two? Forty two?

How about #onemore?

People in Lebanon sometimes don’t even know they can seek treatment for their mood disorder, their eating disorder, personality disorder or even stress- and so they suffer in silence.

That’s why we want to bring attention to mental health: it is #onemore health care that should be a basic right within our society.

That’s why IDRAAC is participating in the Beirut Marathon, to spread awareness about mental health.

That’s why it’s important for us to have your #onemore support.

Dr. Georges Karam, a psychiatrist who founded IDRAAC, is running the 42 kilometer race on 11 November 2018: he wants to raise money to treat over 1,000 people who can’t afford mental health care.

1 in 4 Lebanese will have a mental illness during their lifetime.

1 in 6 will have anxiety.

1 in 8 will have depression.

1 in 20 will seriously consider suicide.

However, only 1 out of 10 will get treated.

You can help #onemore person get treated, you can talk about it #onemore time, and you can run with us at the Beirut Marathon.

By choosing to help IDRAAC, you are #onemore reason for someone to get better.

You are helping someone with a mental disorder, giving them #onemore chance at a normal life.

Talk about it #onemore time, share it with #onemore friend, help #onemore.

If you have any questions about mental health disorders, or you know someone who needs treatment, don't hesitate to contact IDRAAC on 76 10 05 76 or idraac@idraac.org
