Nearly 1 in 5 Americans had mental illness in 2009

Yeah, that’s right, it’s all in your head!

More than 45 million Americans, or 20 percent of U.S. adults, had some form of mental illness last year, and 11 million had a serious illness, U.S. government researchers reported on Thursday.

Young adults aged 18 to 25 had the highest level of mental illness at 30 percent, while those aged 50 and older had the lowest, with 13.7 percent, said the report by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration or SAMHSA.

The article goes on to say that too many Americans are not “getting the help they need.”  I agree!  What America really needs is  1 in 5 Americans to be taking hallucination inducing SRI’s…Prozac, Zoloft, or whatever the hell Big Pharma’s drug of the day is.
