Mental Health in Atlanta

Mental health is a universal issue in Atlanta. With so much stress and pressure, it’s not surprising that mental health conditions are on the rise. Mental health conditions like depression and anxiety are common in today’s society. There are many ways to cope with these conditions, but treatment can be intimidating for some.

Approximately 1 in 5 Americans over the age of 18 experience mental health conditions every year. Those suffering from these conditions are looking for ways to cope, and treatment offers a solution for those suffering. The goal is to find what works best for each individual person and find his or her coping mechanism. In Atlanta, approximately 11.5% of adults 18 and over had a mental health condition within the last year. Of this percentage, women were more likely than men to have experienced a mental health condition.
