If you think you’re just getting upset at the people around you, you might want to stop.
Here’s what you need to know about the mental illness epidemic.
What is mental illness?
Mental illness is a complex, often dangerous disease that affects people of all ages, races and backgrounds.
It’s caused by a range of factors, including anxiety, depression, substance abuse and substance abuse disorders.
It can affect people of any age, but mental illness can be most prevalent in older people, people with a disability and people with mental health problems.
How many people are diagnosed with mental illness in the US?
In 2017, the number of people with depression in the United States hit an all-time high, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
That number jumped from 8.6 million in 2015 to 11.4 million in 2016, and it’s on track to reach an all time high in 2019.
The CDC reports that in 2016 and 2017, at least 1 in 4 adults with a mental illness had been diagnosed.
According to the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), the number for 2017 was 7.4 per 1,000 adults.
According the American Association of Suicidology, the lifetime risk of having a mental disorder is 1 in 200.
The risk is higher for older adults.
