In the United States:

  • Each year, 1 in 5 adults experience a diagnosable mental illness.
  • 31% of adults will experience an anxiety disorder.
  • 7.1% of adults will experience at least one major depressive episode in their lives.
  • 6.8% of adults will experience symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.

Challenges like these can affect anyone. There are several assessments that can help you gain more clarity and understanding about what you are struggling with. Mental Health America’s (MHA) online assessment is a great place to start learning more about how you are feeling.

MHA also has a wide range of recommendations to help you manage, including self-care strategies unique to the challenges you are experiencing.
