Mental Health Q & A
How is mental health important to my well-being?
Mental health disorders and imbalances affect around 10 million Americans. Many of them go untreated because of the stigmas surrounding mental health. But these issues aren’t ones you can just fix yourself.
In the same way you need your provider to help you get through certain illnesses or to heal properly from injury, a mental health professional is crucial to helping you restore balance to your mind.
Mental illnesses are characterized by your thoughts, emotions, and behaviors as you move through everyday situations. Mental illness symptoms can mildly impact a person’s life from time to time, or it can be a severe, everyday occurrence, making it all but impossible for the individual to lead a happy, balanced life. The good news is that mental illnesses are highly treatable.
What are the most common mental health issues?
Mental illness is extremely common. In fact, 20 percent of Americans live with mental illness.
Some of the most common mental illnesses include:
Anxiety, characterized by excessive nervousness, apprehension, and worry, affects 42 million American adults.
Depression, which makes people feel extended periods of despair and dejection, affects 16 million American adults.
If you’re living with a mental illness, you’re not alone.
