Most of us have heard that the demand for mental health services is sharply rising, but how sharply may surprise you. According to the National Institute of Mental Health, 1 in 5 people in the United States suffer from a mental health disorder. Unfortunately, only half of these individuals receive the appropriate treatment they need to lead a healthy lifestyle (OASH, 2022).
