According to the National Institute of Mental Health, nearly 26.2% of American adults are diagnosed with a mental disorder every year. Major depressive disorder is the leading cause of disability and affects roughly 14.8 million adults nationwide. In 2006, about 33,300 deaths were caused by suicide, and about 90% of all suicidal patients were reported to have had diagnosable mental disorders. Approximately 7.7 million Americans suffer from post traumatic stress disorder, while nearly 15 million suffer from moderate-to-severe social phobia.
