The Birmingham Maple Clinic, the premier mental health treatment center in Michigan, recently reported on the results of the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration’s National Survey on Drug Use and Health (SAMHSA), which found that mental illness continues to be a continuing health concern for the country. The Clinic recently commented on the results of the SAMHSA study, which found that 1 in 5 Americans in the US experienced some form of mental illness in the past year. At the treatment center in Michigan, the Birmingham Maple Clinic provides professional treatment for the most prevalent mental health conditions found in the US today, including anxiety and depression, sleep and eating disorders and substance abuse.

At our Michigan treatment center, we are working on bringing those numbers down and educating more Americans on the dangers of leaving mental health conditions untreated. ”
Arias noted that the although the SAMHSA report found that mental illness is an important issue by itself, it is also associated with some of the biggest health problems that many American’s face today. “Mental health is a significant public health problem in itself, but also because it is associated with chronic medical diseases such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, obesity, and cancer, as well as several physical behaviors including physical inactivity, smoking, excessive drinking, and insufficient sleep.” She said.
