It is a serious and growing problem among adults and our youth. According to statistics in 2020, about 21% of people in the US will experience some sort of mental illness. And on in 15 people will have a combination of mental illness and substance use disorder.
Clinical data and demand for mental health services over the last two years, is that those numbers have probably increase. More people are struggling with mental health challenges, especially anxiety, depression and increased alcohol use.
It is important to know that you are not alone, that this is common and that there is help.
