National Alliance of Mental Illness (NAMI) has a lot of great information about depression and other mental health conditions. I was equally surprised to find the long list of conditions including Alzheimer’s disease (more on that later!) and how many people are living with these conditions. You’d be surprised just how many people struggle with mental health conditions on a daily (lifelong) basis. I highly recommend checking out this site and taking a peek at the following statistics. You can find a lot of statistics on mental illness in children, adults, and multicultural backgrounds.
You should be able to click on the attachments above and it will take you to the NAMI website. If not, then visit http://www.nami.org and go to “Learn More” and then view “Mental Health by the Numbers.” Be prepared to be wowed!
