MENTAL HEALTH CARE IS HEALTH CARE

75 percent of Minnesotans believe mental health is a serious problem in their community.

One in four adults experiences a mental illness in his or her lifetime regardless of age, race, religion or income.

More than four out of 10 Minnesotans know someone who has missed a day of work in the past year because of a mental health condition.

One in 5 patients in community hospital mental health units would have been more appropriately treated in a different care setting such as outpatient care or residential treatment.

There is no bigger public health issue facing Minnesota communities than mental health. In every corner of the state, hospitals, law enforcement and community partners cannot meet the demand for mental health services.
