Nearly 1 in 5 U.S. adults live with a mental illness. Mental illness is defined as a mental, behavioral or emotional disorder (NIMH). Nine in 10 U.S. adults say there is no shame in having a mental illness - so don’t let embarrassment or stigma prevent you from seeking care for yourself and your loved ones.
Because individuals are unique, there is no “one-size fits all” mental health treatment that works for everyone. Treatment for mental illness by a trained professional is individualized to meet specific needs. There are also different treatment options available. Choosing the right combination of treatments and supports is an important step in the recovery process. With the right combination of treatment(s), social support and education, most people with mental illness can lead healthy, productive lives and make meaningful contributions to their communities.
