THE IMPORTANT FACTS

What are the most common mental disorders affecting adults?

Anxiety disorders, next to depression, are among the most common mental health disorders in young people. This can include phobias, panic disorder, social anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) or obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD).

An estimated 1.3 million adults attempt suicide each year (CDC). The rate of suicide in RI has increased by more than 30% from 1999 to 2016 (CDC). In RI, Washington County is federally designated as a mental health shortage area, Health Professional Shortage Area, and high needs geographic area. This, coupled with having the highest rate of suicide in the state, demonstrates a severe and immediate need to address this crisis. Depression is the most common psychiatric disorder in people who die by suicide and affects an estimated 26% of the population.
