Statistics about Mental Disorder Prevalence

There are some statistics that fly around concerning mental health that are not easy to understand or validate. Recently, another blog interviewed me, and wrote up a story on the commonly cited statistic that 1 in 5 people will have a mental illness at some point in their life. The blog posting is quite interesting, and can be found here.

Indeed, we should accept mental health as part of our life experience. We experience depression because of the thing or a certain event happened in the past. We should not live with it,better yet we should learn from it and we need to move forward. Acceptance is not an easy thing, but we must have to do it.
