Mental health is defined as our emotional, psychological and social well-being. How we think, feel and act are affected by our mental health, as well as how we deal with stress, relate to others, and the choices we make at every stage of our lives. Mental illness has become pervasive in the United States affecting tens of millions of people. It affects people across all age groups and all walks of life.
More than 50% of people will be diagnosed with a mental illness or disorder at some point in their lifetime. 1 in 5 Americans will experience a mental illness in a given year. 1 in 25 Americans lives with a serious mental illness, such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, or major depression. 1 in 5 children, either currently or at some point during their life, have had a seriously debilitating mental illness. Recent national surveys of young people show alarming increases in the prevalence of anxiety, depression, and other behavioral health challenges that have been increasing consistently over the past decade. Mental illnesses and disorders are common, recurrent, and often serious, but they are also highly treatable and many people do recover.
