Mental health problems are not simple issues. They can have a big impact on how you think, feel, and act, as well as your overall mood. These problems can affect your everyday life and make it challenging to connect with others. It’s important to know that you’re not alone if you’re dealing with mental health issues. Mental health problems are more common than you might realize, but they often stay hidden because of stigma and fear. Here are some key facts to consider:

These statistics are based on the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI).
