Mental Disorders in America

Mental disorders are common in the United States and internationally. An estimated 26.2 percent of Americans ages 18 and older — about one in four adults — suffer from a diagnosable mental disorder in a given year. When applied to the 2004 U.S. Census residential population estimate for ages 18 and older, this figure translates to 57.7 million people. Even though mental disorders are widespread in the population, the main burden of illness is concentrated in a much smaller proportion — about 6 percent, or 1 in 17 — who suffer from a serious mental illness. In addition, mental disorders are the leading cause of disability in the U.S. and Canada.  Many people suffer from more than one mental disorder at a given time, and nearly half (45 percent) of those with any mental disorder meet criteria for 2 or more disorders, with severity strongly related to comorbidity.


The 9KBH Health System, specifically designed for the Behavioral Health industry, helps Behavioral Health facilities meet all requirements of the Affordable Care Act by providing clinically accurate blood pressure, heart rate, blood oxygen, weight, alcohol Breathalyzer results, and body temperature as well as other necessary testing when needed, which includes Cholesterol and Glucose, A1c Diabetes, and INR Coumadin level measurement. A health risk appraisal determines BMI, and Personal Health Record (PHR) generation and Electronic Medical Record s(EMRs) keep personal health information secure, organized and readily accessible to physicians and clinicians at all times.
