"The most staggering statistic that I’ve read regarding mental health goes like this: more than 50% of people in America will experience a mental illness at some point in their lives. This data comes from a study led by Harvard Medical School and the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH).

Take a moment to let that sink in. Then ask yourself, how much do we really know about these conditions that impact most of us at some point in our lives? Mental health issues are not “side issues.” On the contrary, they affect millions of Americans every single day."

Anxiety, depression, and addiction often work together, creating a dangerous trifecta. This article from ProTalk explains how they are related and what to do if you or someone you love struggles with these disorders.
