Mental Health Disorders

Mental health disorders affect millions of U.S. adults each year. Some disorders are mild, and others are more disabling and require intensive management and care.

The majority of people suffering from mental disorders can effectively return to normal, productive lives if they receive appropriate treatment--treatment that is readily available.
