Survey shows sharp rise in adults treated for mental ill health

One in three adults aged 16-74 (37%) with conditions such as anxiety or depression were accessing mental health treatment in 2014.

This figure has increased from one in four (24%) since the last survey was carried out in 2007.

The figures come from the latest survey to be published by NHS Digital.
Overall, around one in six adults (17%) surveyed in England met the criteria for a common mental disorder (CMD) in 2014.
