Mental disorders are common, more common than cancer, diabetes, or heart disease. According to the United States Surgeon General, an estimated 23 percent of American adults (those ages 18 and older)—about 44 million people—and about 20 percent of American children, suffer from a diagnosable mental disorder during a given year.
