If you have been told you have a mental health disorder, you might feel abnormal. However, you might be surprised to find out that one in five American adults has experienced a mental illness within the past year. Millions of sufferers also have a dual diagnosis of both mental health and substance abuse disorders that require behavioral health treatment.
You are not alone if you struggle with symptoms such as anxiety, depression, hallucinations, delusions, difficulty concentrating, or mood swings.

Even if you think there is no way out, more people contend with these thoughts than you know. The good news is, help is available right now — before it’s too late.
