WHY DOES MENTAL HEALTH EDUCATION MATTER? 


  • We believe that every person has a right, and a need, to have  healthy  life skills and be resilient. We have a responsibility to  prepare our  community by helping our men, women and young adults who  often don't get  the help that they desperately need. We can do that by  starting with a  strong mindset to cope with life. Right now, the  numbers show that we,  as a society, are failing in that responsibility.  According to ABC News,  in their article http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/health/2012/01/19/1-in-5-americans-suffer-from-mental-illness/,   1 in 5 Americans Suffers From Mental Illness such as depression, panic   and anxiety attacks and other forms of life struggles that bring  people  down.

FACTS & STATISTICS: DID YOU KNOW? 


  • According to https://www.adaa.org/about-adaa/press-room/facts-statistics,   anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in the U.S.,   affecting 40 million adults in the United States age 18 and older, or   18% of the population. (Source: National Institute of Mental Health).  
  • This article further said that anxiety disorders are highly  treatable,  yet only about one-third of those suffering receive  treatment. Mirakles  offer scientifically and evidence based proven  skills and tools to make  people better through education and empowering  tools.  
  • Anxiety disorders cost the U.S. more than $42 billion a year,   almost one-third of the country's $148 billion total mental health   bill, according to "The Economic Burden of Anxiety Disorders," a study   commissioned by ADAA (The Journal of Clinical Psychiatry, 60(7), July   1999). More than $22.84 billion of those costs are associated with the   repeated use of health care services; people with anxiety disorders  seek  relief for symptoms that mimic physical illnesses.  
  • Furthermore, the Huffington Post wrote in their article http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2015/01/20/depression-statistics_n_6480412.html   the following: Depression has a way of tricking even the happiest of   people into thinking that life isn’t worth experiencing. Their energy  is  evaporated, what once was pleasurable is now less-than appealing and   the physical symptoms are completely taxing.  
  • Sounds pretty terrible, right? While many people consider mental  illness  in the abstract — an affliction outside the realm of  possibility in  their own lives — the sad reality is that these  disorders are  distressingly common. The article provided the following  statistics that  show depression has a greater impact than you might  think.  
  • 350,000,000  The number of people globally who are affected by some form of depression.  
  • 11%  The percentage of adolescents who have a depressive disorder by the age of 18.  
  • 16,000,000  The estimated number of U.S. adults who had at least  one major  depressive episode 2012. This made up approximately 6.9  percent of all  adults in the country.  
  • 14%  The percentage of women from a 2013 postpartum depression  study who had the disorder four to six weeks after giving birth.  
  • 30%  The number of college students who reported feeling depressed, which disrupted their ability to function in school.  
  • $80,000,000,000  The estimated annual cost of depression in the U.S. due to lost productivity and health care.  
  • 50%  The percentage of Americans with major depression who don’t seek treatment for the mental illness.  
  • 10%  The estimated number of American adults age 65 and older who have a diagnosable depressive disorder.
