5 Facts about Mental Illness
Like heart disease or diabetes, mental illness is often a medical condition that calls for proper treatment, support and education.
Two-thirds of people with a diagnosable mental illness never seek professional help. (Many do not know where to go, don’t realize their condition is treatable, or fear discrimination.)
Self-stigma prevents up to 60% of those with mental illness from seeking treatment.
Roughly 50% of of those with severe mental illness are afflicted by substance abuse.
Someone with a mental illness is no more likely to be violent than someone in the general population and is actually 3x more likely to become a victim.
