Prevalence of Mental Disorders

By Infographixdirectory @infographixdir

Based on data never before represented in visual form, this infographic depicts results of the Harvard National Comorbidity Survey—Replication (NCS-R), which took place between February 2001 and April 2003, when 9,282 interviews were conducted to determine the prevalence of mental illness.

Aside from lifetime prevalence of mental disorders, the study determined 12-month prevalence, or the percentage of participants who identified symptoms in the 12 months leading up to the interview—and the numbers are surprising indeed.

Find out the most common class of disorders, as well as the most common disorders themselves, just how many people interviewed had, indeed, experienced some form of mental illness within 12 months of the interview—and how many suffered from two or more.
