The latest numbers from the Bureau of the Census show that the number of people living with mental illness has grown by more than 400,000 people since 2010, and that more than one in five people have a mental illness diagnosis.
And the latest census data indicates that the rate of mental illness is likely to increase even further, thanks in part to the opioid epidemic.
While the number is up a few hundred thousand, it’s still down by almost one-third from the peak in 2010, when it stood at 2.3 million.
The numbers also indicate that the burden of mental health care costs are not getting better as a result of the opioid crisis, which has led to a doubling of the number who suffer from depression and anxiety, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The CDC has said that the spike in mental illness, which is not linked to the economic crisis, may be partly due to the fact that there is less funding available to address it.
According to the CDC, the amount of mental healthcare funding allocated to treating the illness has fallen by about 25% since 2010.
The federal government has also reduced funding to states that do not expand Medicaid to people with mental health needs.
There are several factors that have led to the rising number of mental illnesses, according the CDC: A decrease in the number and severity of mental disorders, which have been on the decline for decades; an increase in the use of opioid and other illegal drugs, which are contributing to a rise in the opioid overdose death rate; a decrease in access to care for mental health and substance abuse disorders; and an increase among people who live in poverty and other barriers to care.
The rise in mental illnesses is likely due to increased use of prescription drugs by the elderly, who may not be able to access medication that they might otherwise need.
As the opioid surge has been the primary focus of public and media attention, the rise in suicides and the overall uptick in mental health disorders have also been highlighted.
Suicide is the leading cause of death for people in the United States, and in the last two years it has risen by about 400,00 people.
In some states, like California, the rate is now more than a third higher than it was two decades ago.
According the Centers of Disease Control, suicide is the third leading cause for death in the country.
According a report released by the Pew Research Center last year, suicide was the leading reason for death among young adults, and more than 20% of the people ages 20 to 24 were also at risk for suicide.
“Suicide rates are on the increase, with about 8% of young adults aged 20 to 34 who were also living with a mental health condition reporting that they had attempted or completed suicide in the previous 12 months,” the report states.
The most common type of suicide is attempted suicide, with around two-thirds of the suicide attempts being suicides.
There were also more than 9,000 children under the age of 18 who committed suicide in 2016, compared to around 1,500 in 2015, according Pew.
There has also been a rise of mental disorder-related suicides, with the number increasing by more people each year, according Toensing.
While there has been an increase, suicide rates are still low compared to the general population, according Dr. Toensing, the director of the Center for the Study of Mental Health.
“It is not an epidemic that has been growing,” Toensing told Business Insider.
“In fact, in the past year, the national rate has been going down.
The suicide rate is not rising as rapidly as it used to be, so it is not a significant problem.”
According to Toensing and the National Alliance on Mental Illness, the increase in suicide rates is also not the result of any new treatments or research that could help the mentally ill get better.
Rather, the rising rates stem from the “overuse” of medications by people with the illness, Toensing said.
“There is no evidence that there are new treatments that can cure mental illness,” Toering said.
For example, there are no new medications to treat bipolar disorder, which affects between 1 and 4% of Americans.
“The vast majority of patients with bipolar disorder don’t need any medication, but the vast majority do need medication to manage symptoms of their condition, which can be a real challenge,” Toening said.
Mental illness has been increasing for decades and was on the radar for the National Association of People with Mental Illnesses, which was founded in 1990.
Its president, Richard W. Kopel, said he hoped that the growing number of Americans suffering from mental illness would lead to an improvement in the way people treat the illness.
“I hope that we can all move away from our own narrow view of what we think mental illness should be and we need to move away and embrace a broader view of mental wellness,” Kopel told Business Week.
“We need to look at mental illness as a spectrum.
It’s not just
