An estimated 26.2 percent of Americans ages
18 and older – about one in four adults – suffer
from a diagnosable mental disorder in a given
year. Even though mental
disorders are widespread in the
population, the main burden of
illness is concentrated in a much
smaller proportion – about 6 percent, or 1 in 17
– who suffer from a serious mental illness.
