Recent NAMI survey highlights public is aware of the risks of not receiving care

Arlington, VA (PRWEB) December 11, 2009 -- Americans do not believe that they know much about depression, but are highly aware of the risks of not receiving care, according to a survey released in November by the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI).

See full survey results at http://www.nami.org/depression, an interactive Web site that includes resources for people of diverse communities.

Though depression is common and highly treatable medical illness, research demonstrates that people of different cultural groups are at increased risk for untreated depression and suicide.

 
  • One in five Latina teenagers in the United States has seriously considered or attempted suicide.
  • More than 15 million Asian Americans live with depression; it’s the second leading cause of death for Asian American and Pacific Islanders.
  • Misdiagnosis and under-treatment are common in the African American community. Only 12 percent of women seek treatment.
The survey provides a “three-dimensional” measurement of responses from members of the general public who do not know anyone with depression, caregiver
