About Mental Health
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, mental illnesses are among the most common health conditions in the United States.
- More than 50% of people are diagnosed with a mental illness or disorder in their lifetime.
- 1 in 5 Americans will experience a mental illness in a given year.
- 1 in 5 children, either currently or at some point during their life, have had a seriously debilitating mental illness.
- 1 in 25 Americans lives with a serious mental illness, such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, or major depression.
Fewer than half of individuals who experience mental health issues received treatment for them, and the COVID 19 pandemic made the growing problem more pervasive than ever.
