Mental Illness Crisis in Our Community
The Centers for Diseases Control and Prevention (CDC) stated that more than 43 million adults in our country struggled with mental illness in the past year; Half of us will meet the criteria for a diagnosable mental health condition at some point in our lives; one quarter by the age of 14; more than 20 million adults have an alcohol addiction annually; tragically, more than 42,000 people died by suicide in the United States in 2014; and homicide finally claimed another 16,000 people¹. Leaving people with mental health diseases in our community without treatment is a public hazard. However, treating people with mental illness will save life!
Recent mass shooting at Fort Lauderdale International Airport could be prevented and life could be saved if our healthcare system did a better job in treating our veterans and low-income families with mental health disorders in our community across the United States. Leaving our veterans with mental illness untreated in our street is a public hazard. According to Donna Wyche, Manager of Mental-Health and Homeless for Orange County, “About 70 percent of the people who need mental-health treatment in the State of Florida can’t get it.” “Either the resources aren’t available or, sometimes, people can’t figure out how to navigate the system to find the resources. We have to do a better job.”
