Nevertheless, these services are still improving and are available to anyone facing these disorders.
State of Mental Health in the US
Astonishingly, health experts have concluded that one out of every two individuals has at least one diagnosable mental health issues throughout the course of their lifetime. According to a report released by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, nearly sixty percent of all the individuals dealing with serious mental health issues are able to seek the treatment that they need. The other forty percent opt to adapt behavioral issues that further their mental health issues and complicate the situation. These behaviors include self medicating and seeking the use of illicit substances, putting these individuals in a volatile mental and emotional situation.

Recognizing Mental Health Issues
In order to properly diagnose those with a mental health issue, one must deeply understand the way the mind works, and how thoughts are manifested in behaviors. They must also understand that many mental conditions may overlap or intertwine with one another. This causes further issues in diagnosis because there are not always clear key markers or indications for certain mental illnesses. An example is the feeling of sadness, it is a natural reaction to experience when losing a loved one. However, when context is given to the situation, the circumstances and diagnosis may change. If the individual has been perpetually sad for the last five years, due to the loss of a loved one, then the individual qualifies to be diagnosed as depressed. Unfortunately, sadness is not the only indicator for depression. In this, properly diagnosing a mental health disorder is a rather complex process, requiring the understanding of symptoms and circumstances surrounding the individual. The process requires time to properly make sense of the situation and deliver the most benefit to the patient.
