Health Care Landscape: Behavioral Health Care Services in Georgia
According to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health, approximately 17.7% of adults in Georgia have a mental illness and 6.5% have a substance use disorder; nationally about 3.3% have both. In addition, roughly one in four adults with a mental illness has a serious mental illness (SMI). Despite the prevalence of mental health and substance use disorders (MHSUDs), many people do not receive the care they need.
