It has been a decade since FIMHR was registered in Chicago, Illinois. Through these challenging years, we have persevered in bringing the message that mental health is vital in the wellness of an individual and that mental illness is a physical condition that requires medical attention. People inflicted with psychiatric problems deserves respect, equal access to health care, and disability benefits that society extends to other physically disabling disorders.
