Massive Mental Health Crisis in the United States

The Herland Report

Herland Report: Massive Mental Health Crisis: The United States is facing a mental health crisis, experts say, noting we’re in dire need of more mental health professionals. Nearly 1 in 3 — 27.3% — of American adults now struggle with depression and/or anxiety.

This is the price society is paying for ill-conceived, irrational pandemic measures and nonstop fearmongering. To treat everyone, each of the 33,000 practicing psychiatrists in the U.S. would have to see approximately 3,000 patients a year — a patient load that simply isn’t feasible.

Those of us who have not succumbed to irrational fear (or worked our way out of it) can act as a lifeline to others by sharing information that empowers rather than enforces fear, and by being role models in the way we live our lives, writes Dr. Joseph Mercola, osteopathic physician, best-selling author and recipient of multiple awards in the field of natural health.
