Uniting For True Mental Health

American Mental Health Society (AMHS) is a nonprofit shared platform that brings together organizations who are working to save and transform lives from unresolved mental health issues and rise to the challenge of addiction. AMHS is a collaboration of leaders within a vast network of impact investors, subject matter experts, influencers, athletes, and artists who are passionate about addressing our mental health epidemic.



Our mission is to help people experience optimal mental health, rise to the challenge of addiction, and experience the support, healing, community, and tools they need to live a full and fulfilling life.

We exist because these statistics exist:


suffer from a depressive illness


at least 1 addiction


have depression or an anxiety

Approximately 9.5% of American adults ages 18 and over, will suffer from a depressive illness (major depression, bipolar disorder, or dysthymia) each year.

Women are nearly twice as likely to suffer from major depression than men. However, men and women are equally likely to develop bipolar disorder.

While major depression can develop at any age, the average age at onset is the mid-20s.

Most people who commit suicide have a diagnosable mental disorder -- most commonly a depressive disorder or a substance abuse disorder.

Four times as many men than women commit suicide. However, women attempt suicide more often than men.

Almost 21 million Americans have at least 1 addiction, yet only 10% of them receive treatment.

Drug overdose deaths have more than tripled since 1990.

About 20% of Americans who have depression or an anxiety disorder also have a substance use disorder.

More than 90% of people who have an addiction started to drink alcohol or use drugs before they were 18 years old.

What's The problem?

The choices we make are a direct reflection of the beliefs we have. By any metric, America is squarely in a mental health and addiction crisis, and millions of families suffer every day. Because of lack of access to knowledge, support, care, and crucial resources, people needlessly suffer, often alone and in despair.

“No one cares.”
“I’m a burden to those around me.”
“There’s no way out.”
“Life can’t get any better.”

What we think dictates how we live.
