If you haven’t experienced it yourself, chances are you know someone who has dealt with or is currently dealing with one of these two widespread mental health conditions. It seems they’re more prevalent now than ever, especially in teenagers and young adults. But they’re also on the rise in the elderly population. The reasons are no doubt many and diverse.
