Every year, an estimated 43.8 million adults in the U.S. experience mental illness, and about 10 million suffer from a serious mental illness that substantially interferes with or limits one or more major life activities. More than 50% of adults with a substance use disorder have a co-occurring mental illness. Despite the prevalence of mental health disorders, a societal stigma still exists due to widespread misconceptions. Access to accurate knowledge is more likely to result in receiving appropriate support and treatment — and may even prevent such tragic consequences as suicide. Our mental health resources reflect the multifaceted treatment programs offered by our facilities across the country. These programs encompass specialized therapies for mood disorders like depression and bipolar disorder while also addressing frequent comorbidities such as substance abuse, alcoholism, trauma and eating disorders.
Well-researched educational articles cover a broad range of topics including major depression, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, personality disorders, anxiety disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorder, PTSD and other behavioral problems. You’ll learn about symptoms, diagnostic criteria and challenges, inpatient and outpatient treatment programs, medications, different types of psychotherapy, alternative/complementary approaches and more. Whether you’re looking for information about emotional problems or a serious clinically diagnosable mental illness, these resources will help you better understand the complex factors that contribute to mental health issues. We hope these resources will help individuals and families recognize signs and symptoms before they impair daily functioning and empower people to seek help for mental illness.
