Mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices.

Domestic violence does not discriminate. Anyone of any race, age, sexual orientation, religion or gender can be a victim – or perpetrator – of domestic violence.

Serious mental illnesses (SMIs) are a small subset of the 300 mental illnesses that are in DSM.

Hopelessness begins with a thought that manifests in a feeling that can infiltrate and destroy your spirit. Once hopelessness has found a home in your spirit it will impact everything you see and do. Unfortunately, when your hope is shaken your faith is impacted. And without faith you cannot advance any further in the kingdom of God. So fight to keep your hope.

Serious Mental Illness
Another effort to define serious mental illness and calculate the number of people it affects took place in 1993. The Senate Appropriations Committee asked the National Advisory Mental Health Council to report on how much it would cost to provide insurance coverage for people with “severe mental illness” commensurate with the coverage of other illnesses.3 It stipulated that “severe mental illness” is defined through diagnosis, disability, and duration, and includes disorders with psychotic symptoms such as schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorder, manic depressive disorder, autism, as well as severe forms of other disorders such as major depression, panic disorder, and obsessive compulsive disorder. Using that definition, they concluded that 3% of adults have severe mental illness. This estimate is close to what CMHS and NIMH found.

The federal definition of serious mental illness is the result of a mandate from the 1992 Alcohol, Drug Abuse, and Mental Health Administration Reorganization Act.4 This definition was created by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). It was meant to help states – that were applying for grant funds to support mental health services – estimate the incidence and prevalence of SMI. Federal use of the term “chronic mental illness” ended after consumers and advocates argued that the term had negative connotations. They felt it suggested that some forms of mental illness are intractable. As a result, chronic mental illness was changed to severe and persistent mental illness, and later to serious mental illness.
