Mental health in America

In 2014 alone, about 43.6 million Americans 18 years or older (18.1 percent of the U.S. adult population) experienced some form of mental health problem. Of those individuals, 33.7 million were categorized as having any mental illness (AMI), whereas 9.8 million had a serious mental illness (SMI). Moreover, studies show that about 47.4 percent of Americans will experience a mental health problem during their lives. Sadly, the mental health system is in need of an overhaul, and the U.S. is experiencing a shortage of mental health workers.
