Navigating the Path to Mental Health
Nearly a fifth of the people in the U.S. have a mental health condition. That’s over 43 million Americans and more than half lack access to care. In Ohio as with the rest of the country, the stats show mental health issues have been increasing over the last several years, and the state is either in line with or worse than the national average when it comes to those increasing rates. Beginning on May 29, WKSU will look at the challenges that stand in the path to finding the support needed to find better mental health. Every Tuesday on Morning Edition, we'll take a look at one of the challenges that exist and some of the resources and solutions that are available. Also join us on Wednesday, June 27th at the Akron Summit County public library for a conversation on the issue.
