The mental health crisis in America is a huge problem, and we are causing a ripple effect by not acknowledging it. According to an ACU Online article, the number of adolescents reporting a major depressive episode increased by 60% between 2007 and 2019. Tragically, the suicide death rate among 10-24 year olds increased by 56% during the same time period. If this trend continues, anxiety and depression will increase drastically in the coming years. Depression and anxiety rates have increased so rapidly that the Surgeon General of the United States declared this time as a “devastating” national mental health crisis.
The DCT team identified the issue and came together to provide individuals and couples in need with convenient, cost-effective, and dependable assistance. We can assist the one in every five Americans who suffer from a mental illness. We are fighting smarter, better, and faster together than ever before. But we can’t do it alone. AIGAS Foundation has been working to support our cause. Service to those in need would not have been possible without your generous donations at the AIGAS Foundation. Thank you for your help.
