QUOTABLE: Todd Ackerman

"More than 5 percent of American adults have a serious mental illness— half are between the ages of 25 and 44—and most everyone agrees that traditional psychotherapy's ministrations have failed. According to the most recent statistics, mental illness' total estimated economic cost to American society is more than $200 billion a year, and growing. Other costs, such as reduced quality of life, torn families and loss of life, cannot be calculated."

Todd Ackerman, Houston Chronicle, March 10, 2002
