Indiana among states who provide the worst mental health care in the United States

Written from press release:

INDIANAPOLIS — A recent study conducted by Leafwell, analyzing data from Mental Health America, has identified Indiana as one of the states providing the worst support for mental health care in the United States.

The study ranked Indiana eighth among all states, with an overall score of 65.5 out of 100. This score reflects various factors including the percentage of adults with any mental illness (AMI) who receive treatment, the percentage of adults with AMI who report that their needs are met, and the percentage of adults with AMI who have medical insurance.

In Indiana, 48.8% of adults with mental illness receive treatment, while only 61.2% report that their needs are met. Despite 86.5% of adults with mental illness having medical insurance, the state still faces challenges in providing adequate mental health care services.

The study comes at a time when mental health care is a growing concern nationwide, with 20.78% of U.S. citizens living with a mental illness. Across the country, efforts are being made to improve access to mental health care and reduce the stigma surrounding mental illness.

Indiana’s ranking highlights the need for continued efforts to enhance mental health care services and support for those living with mental illness in the state.
