Mental Health in Cleveland

The mental health condition statistics in Cleveland are alarming.

A major problem for African-Americans is having a lack of access to mental health services.

Mental health issues are now showing up as the third leading cause of disability among African-Americans. There approximately is a 9/1 ratio of Caucasians with mental health conditions to African-Americans.

Today, more people suffer from mental health conditions than from cancer.

Out of 5 of every 100 children, 1 of them has a mental health condition.

An estimated 13 million people live with some sort of serious mental illness.

An estimated 40 million adults live with some sort of diagnosable mental disorder.


The suicide rate is increasing among young African-Americans due to the lack of positive coping skills and social support. Depression also affects more than 16.1 million American adults per year, which can lead to other issues including anxiety, substance abuse, major depressive disorder, bipolar disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD), borderline personality disorder (BPD) and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). In addition many African-Americans are diagnosed with schizophrenia or bipolar disorder.

The problem is that African-Americans seek mental health services at half the rate of Caucasians, and even lower among Latinos.
