Mental Illness can affect persons of any age, race, religion or socioeconomic status.
One in five American adults lives with mental illness. Individuals both diagnosed and undiagnosed with mental illness are those around us – our neighbors, our friends, family and co-workers. Four million children and adolescents in this country suffer from a serious mental disorder that causes significant functional impairments at home, at school and with peers.
Mental health disorders account for more disability that any other illness, including cancer and heart disease reports the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
