- According to the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), Mental health disorders account for four of the top 10 causes of disability in established market economies, such as the US, worldwide, and include: major depression (also called clinical depression), manic depression (also called bipolar disorder), schizophrenia, and obsessive-compulsive disorder.
- An estimated 22.1 percent of Americans ages 18 and older - about one in five (or over 44 million) adults - suffer from a diagnosable mental disorder in a given year.
- Approximately 18.8 million American adults - or 9.5 percent - ages 18 and over, will suffer from a depressive illness (major depression, bipolar disorder, or dysthymia) each year. Many of them will be unnecessarily incapacitated for weeks or months because their illness is left untreated.
It is vital that Americans know that help is available. As many as eight in 10 people suffering from mental disorders can effectively return to normal, productive lives if they receive appropriate treatment – treatment which is readily available.
