Depression is one of the most common mental
disorders in the United States and can
significantly impact a person’s daily life and
activities. In 2016, almost 11% of young adults
ages 18-25 had experienced depression as well
as 7% of adults ages 26-49. For all adults over
18, it is estimated that over 10.3 million adults
had experienced major depression that
significantly impaired their lives. For adolescents
ages 12-17, around 2.2 million or 9% of the
population ages 12-17 have experienced depression that has significantly impacted their daily lives. Of these adolescents, 60% did not received any treatment for their depression.
