Government Says 20% Suffer From Mental Illness

The government says one in five American adults suffered from mental illness during the past year. Most didn't receive treatment.

A survey being released today by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration found that 45 million experienced some form of mental illness in 2009, from major depression to problems such as suicide attempts. Fewer than four in 10 received treatment for their mental-health condition.
Coincidentally, 20% of adult Americans are self-described liberals.
