The research will find if any of these variables are the primary cause, share a connection, or a coincidence. Mental Illness in America In the United States, there are more than ten million adults and over 70% of youth with major depression with unmet needs for mental health treatment (MHA, 2020). In recent times, the perceptions of illness is that the publicity around individuals with mental illnesses, has increased dramatically in the media. From the production of films about those with mental illnesses to celebrity diagnosis of a mental illness, illness is something our society is beginning to talk about more often. However, there are certain stigmas attached to these illnesses that make it harder for patients and their families to cope with their situation. Most often because of the portrayals of chronic illness that romanticize illnesses and do not necessarily show all the effects of these illnesses on the patient or their family. Mental Health Care More Americans than ever before have health insurance but coverage has not been suitable for mental health related treatment (MHA, 2020). According to national epidemiologic studies in the United States posted in 1996, many people with mental and addictive disorders have received their care in the general medical care sector. This has important implications for Literature Review 3 diagnosis and treatment of mental and addictive disorders (1996). The important of this finding is that mental illness is more complex to be treated by a general physician. Mental illness needs to be treated and diagnosed by a specialist. Integrating mental health care in the primary care setting has been identified in the literature as a model for increasing access to mental health services and has been associated with enhanced clinical and functional patient outcomes and higher patient satisfaction (Zeiss and Karlin, 2008).
