Anxiety disorders are the most common, effecting 40 million adults a year.

Symptoms include excessive and irrational fear, and types include panic disorder, PTSD, and obsessive compulsive disorder.

Depression is another common mental health issue with several different types – major, psychotic, postpartum, and seasonal.

Other common mental health problems include bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, eating disorders, and autism.

Treatments vary drastically based on the type of illness, but include medication, psychotherapy, and brain stimulation therapies.
