Approximately 50% of lifetime mental health conditions begin by age 14, and 75% begin by age 24. At the same time, the average delay between when symptoms first appear and intervention is approximately 11 years (NAMI, 2020). Early identification and treatment leads to better outcomes. Early treatment may also lessen long-term issues and prevent years of suffering.

One in five adults in the U.S.- or about 47 million people- experience mental illness, yet only half seek treatment. Many people have mental health concerns from time-to-time, but a mental health concern becomes a mental illness when ongoing signs and symptoms cause frequent stress and affect your ability to function. If symptoms are affecting your or your loved one's ability to function, you should consider seeking help.

Most people who experience mental illnesses will improve if they receive appropriate supports, services, and treatment. The first step to getting the right treatment is to see a health care professional and review your symptoms and life circumstances. Treatment options are tailored to each specific person and condition; however, the most common forms of treatment include:

Psychotherapy

  • Individual
  • Group
  • Family/Couples
  • Provided by trained mental health professionals, such as licensed psychologists, social workers, professional counselors, etc.

Medication

  • Used to treat the symptoms of many mental disorders such as schizophrenia, depression, bipolar disorder (sometimes called manic-depressive illness), anxiety disorders, and attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
  • Can also be used to manage the cravings and relapse associated with certain kinds of addictions.
  • Sometimes used with other treatments such as psychotherapy or counseling.
  • Prescribers include psychiatrists, nurse practitioners, PCP, etc.

More intensive levels of care

  • Intensive Outpatient Programs (typically 3 hours per day)
  • Partial Hospitalization Programs (typically 6 hours per day)
  • Inpatient hospitalization (24/7 care)
