2019 Annual Report: Moving Behavioral Health Care Forward
Mental health and substance use treatment has come a long way — but challenges remain. Many communities have little infrastructure or tools to address their needs. Schools and workplaces are unequipped to spot and address the early signs of mental illness or addiction. Stigma prohibits young people from seeking help. Health care providers lack the training and staff to provide quality care. And poor coordination between systems creates unnecessary barriers to life-saving support.
That’s where the National Council for Mental Wellbeing comes in. Our progress this year made us stronger. It made our communities stronger. It gave us confidence that we can overcome any challenges we face. And we are finding out now how the accomplishments we made yesterday can prepare us to meet unexpected new obstacles tomorrow.
