1 in 4 is sick!
Sorry this crooked frame was driving me nuts!
Mental disorders are common in the United States and internationally. An estimated 26.2 percent of Americans ages 18 and older — about one in four adults — suffer from a diagnosable mental disorder in a given year.1 When applied to the 2004 U.S. Census residential population estimate for ages 18 and older, this figure translates to 57.7 million people.2 Even though mental disorders are widespread in the population, the main burden of illness is concentrated in a much smaller proportion — about 6 percent, or 1 in 17 — who suffer from a serious mental illness.1 In addition, mental disorders are the leading cause of disability in the U.S. and Canada.3 Many people suffer from more than one mental disorder at a given time. Nearly half (45 percent) of those with any mental disorder meet criteria for 2 or more disorders, with severity strongly related to comorbidity.1
In the U.S., mental disorders are diagnosed based on the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, fourth edition (DSM-IV).4
1 in 4? Really? 25% of the USA suffer from mental illness at some point or another? Or half of the GOP? (Sounds like a profitable business... drive people crazy then sell em drugs and places to stay ETC. Problem with the inciting violence tactic is that most of thier followers are in wheelchairs... thus the emergence of the "Koch Brother Libertarian". These media sales tactics are driving people crazy, they know it and are continuing to do it INTENTIONALLY. I got Piers Morgan a month ago, or so it seems, yet he won't admit his basic statistics 101 mistake? Why? Simply by controlling the broadcast bandwidth Piers Morgan can continue this gun debate charade for as long as he likes. He just has to ignore the small minority of people who know about it or slander the ones that realize it but can do nothing about it because then never made it through college (I noticed & waited... I wasn't expecting a whole magazine to follow Piers Morgan but in retrospect maybe all of the US has become Disneyland)..
