Mental Health Intervention in California

mental health intervention in californiaOf all the debilitating illness that plague Americans each year, serious mental illness continues to be at the top of the charts. Each year almost 44.5 million adults aged 18 or older experienced a mental illness. This means that as many as 19.7 percent of the entire American adult population is living with a mental illness. Within the state of California statistics show that 4.3 percent of the population aged 18 and older are currently living with a Serious Mental Illness (SMI) and 19.6 percent have been diagnosed with some form of mental illness. The question that must be asked is with such a staggering statistic, how many of these people are receiving the mental health intervention that they dramatically need? (Samhsa)
