NAMI National Alliance on Mental Illness | #Together4MH Together for Mental Health | Mental Health Awareness Month. More than 51 million adults in the United States face the reality of managing a mental illness every day. 1 in 20 adults in the United States experiences a serious mental illness every year. 1 in 6 youth aged 6-17 experience a mental health condition each year. Half of all lifetime mental health conditions begin by age 14 and 75% by age 24. Early intervention programs can help. Individuals with a mental health condition face an average 11 year delay between experiencing symptoms and starting treatment. Common barriers to treatment include the cost of mental health care and insurance, prejudice and discrimination and structural barriers like transportation. Taking on the challenges of mental health conditions, health coverage, and erasing the stigma around mental illness requires all of us. #Together4MH Together for Mental Health. Learn more:
