NAMI Released Engagement Report
Gaps In Mental Health Care
Play Out In Emergency Rooms

Psychiatric patients have longer ER stays than patients with physical problems, research shows, and have trouble finding inpatient care and follow-up treatment. Kids can be among the hardest hit.

The U.S. system of mental health care is failing to engage many people who seek help. 70% of all people who seek mental health care drop out after their first or second visit. The first moments of interaction between a service provider and a person seeking care for a mental health condition can set the tone and course of treatment. The same is true about interactions with others in the community; a person who has been told that people with mental illness are scary, weak or unable to care for themselves may not seek help or may avoid telling others the full extent of what they are experiencing.  

 

A fundamental shift in the culture of mental health care delivery is critical. Now is the time to act.
