Substance abuse problems typically begin in adolescence and early adulthood, so this time is critical for early intervention. One in five adults is estimated to have a mental disorder in any one year in the United States, and research has estimated that half of all mental disorders begin by age 14. Anxiety disorders affect approximately one in eight youth and are more prevalent than virtually all other mental disorders of childhood and adolescence. Depression is one of the most common mental health disorders in older adults.
