Mental health is essential to an individual’s well-being, interpersonal relationships, and ability to live a full and productive life. Mental health disorders are among the most common causes of disability in the United States, and individuals with untreated mental health disorders are at high risk for many unhealthy and unsafe behaviors, including alcohol or drug abuse, violent or self-destructive behavior, and suicide. Mental health disorders can have harmful and long-lasting effects—including high psychosocial and economic costs—not only for people living with the disorder, but also for their families, schools, workplaces, and communities.
This Who’s Leading the Leading Health Indicators? webinar will focus on activities and interventions related to mental health disorders. Through 4 presentations focusing on data, communication efforts, and effective implementation strategies at the state level, presenters will explore the importance of mental health and the progress we are making to address this public health issue.
