SAN FRANCISCO, March 11, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- As Brain Awareness Week (March 11-17) begins today, Total Brain, the world's first brain optimization platform, announces new research that shows 76% of 18-34 year olds admit they are struggling with their mental health but only 1 in 4 currently receive professional help.
This statistic is based on new findings from the 2019 Total Brain survey of 1,008 Americans 18-55+ years old. Other results from the survey include:
More than 1/2 of 18-34 year olds have severe or moderate mental fatigue
More than 1 in 3 18-55+ year olds say anxiety or depression causes them to be mentally unproductive at work
"Our research shows that most Millennials are experiencing significant issues with their mental health, which can have a negative impact on their personal and professional lives, yet they're not seeking out professional help," said Louis Gagnon, CEO of Total Brain. "Our Total Brain platform can be a great starting point with assessment of all twelve brain capacities, mental condition screening, self-care and brain training developed by neuroscientists."
