Chronic illness affects nearly 1 in 2 people – approximately 155 million people in the United States alone – almost half of the world’s population. Invisible illness characterizes approximately 96% of those with chronic illness.

Mental illness impacts 1 in 5 adults – approximately 43.8 million adults in the United States alone. And half of all chronic mental illness begins by age 14.

Caregivers – More than 65 million people provide care for a chronically ill, disabled, or aged family member. And 4 in 10 people spend an average of 24 hours per week caring for a loved one.
