Mental Health and Well-being


Mental Health and Well-being

Mental health is an important part of overall health and well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act. When we are mentally healthy, we are able to cope with stress, make decisions, and connect with others.

There are many factors that can affect mental health, including genetics, environment, and life experiences. Some common mental health problems include anxiety, depression, and eating disorders.

Mental health problems can be serious and can interfere with a person’s ability to function at work, school, and in relationships. However, there are many effective treatments available for mental health problems.

Mental Health in the US

According to the National Institute of Mental Health, about 1 in 5 adults in the US experiences mental illness each year. The most common mental illnesses are anxiety disorders, mood disorders, and substance use disorders.

The prevalence of mental illness can vary depending on factors such as age, gender, race, and ethnicity. For example, women are more likely than men to experience anxiety disorders, while men are more likely than women to experience substance use disorders.

Mental illness can have a significant impact on a person’s life. People with mental illness are more likely to have chronic health problems, be unemployed, and be incarcerated. They are also more likely to attempt suicide.
