The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) has released a report on the state of the mental health system in the United States. They used specific criteria to produce grades for each state.
How does your state rate??
Unfortunately I live in a state that received an "F". It was no surprise to me. Thankfully we have an excellent team in place for Paige, but this was no easy task. There is a shortage of docs and basically no programs in place to help the kids if they are not hospitalized. There is not even something as simple as a social skills playgroup for kids.
I wonder what it's going to take to raise awareness and find solutions.
Why is it so uncomfortable for people to discuss mental health issues?
