Serious Mental Illness and Access to Care Among Rural and Urban Adults
Very little research has examined the prevalence of serious mental illness (SMI) and access to mental health treatment among rural relative to urban adults in the U.S. This project provided estimates of the prevalence and correlates of SMI and access to mental health services among rural and urban adults nationally. To address these issues, we analyzed data from the National Survey on Drug Use and Health, the nation's primary source of annual information on mental health. The project has important and timely federal policy relevance as the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has identified serious mental illness as a priority topic.
