Various studies have indicated that mental well-being is more important and affects overall health. The researchers claim that rise in stress levels has impacted a large number of the American population and have taken a toll on their lives. Due to mental illness, the suicide cases are also increasing subsequently in America.
According to the study conducted by NYU Langone Medical Center, the number of mental illness are worrying. Around 8.3 million Americans suffer from mental illness, according to 2014’s estimates. Judith Weissman, the lead author of the study stated that lack of proper treatment is contributing to the cause further.
Other factors that have contributed to the rise are the recession that has taken place in 2008 which have impacted Americans badly, depression, anxiety etc. The concrete reason why there is an increase in health care costs is not yet known.
The Conducted Study
The study was based on the survey conducted between 2006 and 2014 by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Every year 35,000 families have participated in the survey conducted in the US. It was reported that 1 in 10 individual suffering from mental illness did not have medical insurance cover for psychiatric treatment.
In 2014, about 9.9 percent of individuals suffering from mental illness could not afford the cost of treatment.
The study and its findings are published in the journal Psychiatric Services.
Mental Illnesses Taking Toll On Suicide Rates
The suicide cases in America is increasing rapidly and mental disorders like depression, anxiety are the main culprits behind the increase. According to recent statistics, about 43,000 people in the United States commit suicides every year.
Weissman also said that the suicide cases are seen mostly in the middle-aged group. This passes on to the next generations also.
Reduction in the cost of health care facilities and ease of availability can reduce the number of mental illnesses and ultimately the suicide cases in America.
