Mental health is one of the most overlooked issues in America. According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, 1 in every 5 adults in America experience a mental illness. Nearly 1 in 25 (10 million) adults in America live with a serious mental illness. Suicide is the 3rd leading cause of death in youth age 10-24. 90% of those who died by suicide had an underlying mental illness.
