Mental illnesses are health conditions involving changes in emotion, thinking or behavior (or a combination of these). Mental illnesses are associated with distress and/or problems functioning in social, work or family activities. Mental illness is common.
- nearly one in five (19 percent) U.S. adults experience some form of mental illness
- one in 24 (4.1 percent) has a serious mental illness*
- one in 12 (8.5 percent) has a diagnosable substance use disorder
Mental illness is treatable. Most individuals with mental illness continue to function in their daily lives.
In response to the growing men's mental health crisis in Valdosta, GA, Dr. Hill recently conducted her first ever “MENtal Clarity” conference on April 1, 2023. This event quickly reached full capacity and was met with so much great feedback, the men asked that the conversations continue. A “MENtal Matters” workshop, spinoff of the “MENtal Clarity” workshop, will take place on June 10th as a means to continue the conversation on black men, mental health, and spirituality.
