Lake Behavioral Hospital Celebrates World Mental Health Day
World Mental Health Day is Thursday, October 10th. With this in mind, we at Lake Behavioral Hospital want to highlight the overall importance of mental health treatment & services, not only in our local areas but throughout the country as well. The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) reports that 47.6 million adults in the United States (Approximately 19% of the adult population) experienced some form of mental illness in 2018.
Of those reported 47.6 million adults, 43.3% (about 20.5 million) received mental health treatment in 2018. That still leaves over 25 million adults who struggled with a mental illness this past year and didn’t receive the care they needed. The average delay between the onset of mental illness symptoms and treatment is 11 years, which simply means that many men and women throughout our country are currently living their lives without mental health treatment. Their symptoms can worsen until there is a serious mental health emergency. If you or a loved one is in need of help, please seek it. Lake Behavioral Hospital is a beacon of hope for those in need of mental health care.
