In the United States, it is estimated by the National Alliance on Mental Health that approximately one in five adults, or 46.6 million people, suffer from mental illness in a given year. Furthermore, one in 25 adults will experience a serious mental illness. Mental illness, such as depression and anxiety, do no discriminate based on gender, race, or socioeconomic status. No matter how famous you may be or how much money you may have, there is a chance that you will fight off mental illness at some point in your lifetime.
