With nearly one in five Americans living with mental illness and one in 12 living with addiction, and deaths from suicide and overdose at an all-time high, it’s clear that this country is facing a public health crisis unlike any before. Breaking down barriers to prevention strategies, treatment, and recovery supports should be top a priority for all policymakers.
