Consider the following statistics1:
5.7 million - The number of people in the United States who live with Bipolar Disorder
14.8 million - The number of people in the United States who live with Major Depressive
What is startling is that even though 57.7 million Americans (almost 1 in 4 adults) experience some form of mental health disorder in any given year, fewer than eight million seek treatment. However, numerous resources are available for these people. Our commitment to research we has made us an international leader in developing effective therapies.
