Beyond Stigma: Developing Workable Behavioral Health Policies

The prevalence of mental health conditions is on the rise, and suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the United States.  Nearly 45 million adults in America currently struggle with mental illness.  But adults are not the only individuals impacted by these conditions.  Behavioral health disorders also impact millions of children and adolescents. 

Despite the growing numbers living with mental health challenges, more than half receive no treatment due to stigma, lack of insurance coverage, cost, and no access to providers.  This care gap comes at a tremendous cost to both individuals and society through loss of life, homelessness, poverty, unemployment, crime, and physical health impacts.  It impacts all of our institutions and sectors from healthcare to education and from prisons to workplaces. 

To aid in identifying both the deficiencies and the solutions, the 2019 Southern Illinois Healthcare (SIH)-Southern Illinois University (SIU) Health Policy Institute seeks to create an informative and engaging forum aimed at addressing America’s mounting mental health dilemma.
