MENTAL ILLNESS

Mental illness can be thought of as a health condition that changes an individual’s thinking, feeling, or behavior and causes distress or difficulty in functioning.

Mental illness is exceedingly common. We are currently in a mental health crisis in the U.S.

  • Nearly 1 in 5 U.S. Adults live with mental illness.
  • Few families in the U.S. are untouched by mental illness. Nearly 6 in 10 Americans are seeking treatment for themselves or a loved one.
  • Suicide is the second leading cause of death for individuals aged 15 – 29.

Seeking help for mental illness is not as common as the prevalence of mental illnesses, primarily due to the lack of proper treatment access.

  • Nearly 75% of Americans do not believe mental health services are available for everyone, and approximately 50% believe options are limited.
  • Significant barriers to treatment exist: high cost, lack of insurance coverage, limited options, long waits, social stigma
  • Many do not have access to the help they need - wide disparities exist based on a variety of personal and socioeconomic factors.

Signs that you may benefit from treatment:

  • Noticeable personality change
  • Inability to cope with problems or daily activities
  • Unusual / grandiose ideas    
  • Excessive anxieties
  • Prolonged depression or apathy
  • Changes in eating or sleeping patterns
  • Suicidal or self-destructive thoughts 
  • Extreme mood swings – high or low
  • Abuse of alcohol or drugs
  • Excessive anger, hostility, violent behavior

MENTAL WELLNESS  

Mental health is not simply the absence of illness, but more broadly a state of well-being. Mental health is a persistent state to aim for, in which individuals:

  • Develop their abilities
  • Face the stress of daily life
  • Perform productive and fruitful work
  • Contribute to the betterment of their community

Accordingly, it’s important to not only treat mental health issues, but also to promote mental well-being. This is one of our core focuses at Kemet.
