How Common Are Mental Disorders?

WHO mentions that 1 in every 8 individuals worldwide lives with a diagnosed mental illness. According to Mental Health America, around 20% of American adults are affected by a diagnosable mental health disorder each year. Additionally, nearly 50% of Americans will meet the criteria for having a mental health condition at some point in their lives. Of those individuals who develop a disorder, half show the first signs before age 14.

These statistics illustrate how mental illnesses do not discriminate. Yet despite how widespread mental health conditions are, stigma persists. Raising awareness and improving access to mental healthcare is crucial for supporting the millions affected.
