Twenty percent of adult Americans-or one in five-will have mental illness during their lifetime that is severe enough to require treatment, and many more have problems that prevent them from enjoying their lives. Often, these people suffer in silence. Asking for help is not an easy thing for many people to do, but it is a wise move when a person feels that something is wrong. This publication can also be obtained by calling the Center for Mental Health Services (CMHS), Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration at (800) 789-2647.

Mental illnesses are among the most common conditions affecting health today. Researchers believe most serious mental illnesses are caused by complex imbalances in the brain's chemical activity. They also believe environmental factors can play a part in triggering-or cushioning against-the onset of mental illness. Mood disorders are one form of serious mental illness. This fact sheet is intended only as a starting point for gaining an understanding about two of the most common mood disorders: depression and bipolar disorder, also known as manic-depressive illness. Available from SAMHSA's National Health Information Center by calling (800) 789-2647. Ask for Pub No. KEN98-0049.
