When we think about health, most of us think of physical health. While it’s important to take care of your body, your mental health is just as important. 

How common is mental illness? 

Many people feel uneasy talking about mental health issues. But mental illness is more common than you may realize. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that one in five Americans will experience mental illness each year. And more than half of Americans will be diagnosed with a mental illness or disorder at some point in their lives.
