Report Says Most U.S. Adults With Mental Health Issues Don’t Receive Care

More than 90 percent of people who died by suicide showed symptoms of mental health conditions, according to a new QuoteWizard report, released in September, which is Suicide Prevention Month. The report notes that 59 percent of U.S. adults with a mental health condition did not receive care over the past year. The report also found that Maryland ranks 38th for the prevalence of mental illness and has the 14th-highest access to mental health care in the country, ranking it with a composite score of 2nd-best overall for its lower mental illness rate and higher access to care.
