Epidemiologic Data on Prevalence of Psychiatric and Substance Disorders
Analysis of Graphs and Figures
Any Mental Illness (AMI) refers to having another diagnosable mental, behavioral and
emotional disorder which are not related to developmental and substance abuse. The first graph
on the prevalence of any mental illness has reached 18.1 percent for adults in America. The
majority of adults with AMI are women, who are 21.8 percent of the individuals with AMI. It is
most prevalent in adults between 18-49, with adults of 18-25 having a prevalence rate of 20.1
and those between 26-49 with a prevalence rate of 20.4 percent. The prevalence of AMI was
highest among the adults that reported belonging to two or more races (27.1 percent prevalence
rate).
From figure 10-2, the prevalence of severe mental illness stands at 4.1 percent. Female
prevalence is higher than male, standing at 5.0 percent as compared to male 3.1 percent. Adults
between 18-48 have the highest prevalence rate, with those between 18-25 being 4.8 percent of
the adults with SMI while those between 26-49 being 4.9 percent. The prevalence of SMI was
highest among the adults that reported belonging to two or more races (8.9 percent prevalence
rate). Figure 10-3 shows that neuropsychiatric disorders are the top leading disorder category
leading to DALYs in the U.S. Figure 10-4 shows DALYs caused by disorders in the mental and
behavioral health category. Major depressive disorder is at the top of the list, with a prevalence
rate of 3.73. this is closely followed by drug and alcohol use disorders. Summarily, the graph
shows that mood disorders, drug and alcohol abuse are the most prevalent behavioral health
disorders in the U.S, leading to DALYs.
