Mental health problems continue to remain a major challenge in US

- 42.5 million of adults in America, 18.19 percent, suffer from a mental health issue.

- 19.7 million, or 8.46 percent, have a substance abuse problem.

- 8.8 million, or 3.77 percent of Americans have reported serious thoughts of suicide.

- The highest rates of emotional, behavioral or developmental issues among young people occur just west of the Appalachian Mountains, where poverty and social inequality are pervasive.

Meanwhile, there is a shortage of mental health care professionals — nationally there is only one provider for every 790 people, according to the report.
