Investing in the Future of Mental Health Care

One in five Americans suffer from a mental illness but only half of adults and just over half of youth receive treatment, in part due to a lack of providers. Recent studies have found that the majority of non-metropolitan counties do not have mental health professionals available. As a large provider of mental health services in central Maine, Kennebec Behavioral Health strives to make services more accessible and part of the agency’s solution is to encourage teens and young adults to pursue careers in the field.
