More than 1.1 million people call Rhode Island home and about 38,000 of them are living with a serious mental illness. That number does not include the 11,000 kids under the age of 18 who are also struggling with a mental health condition or serious emotional disturbance. Untreated mental illness is a serious problem in Rhode Island and it’s not one that the state government is equipped to handle.

Rhode Island State Budget Is Unable to Meet Mental Health Treatment Needs
National Alliance for Mental Illness (NAMI) reports that Rhode Island’s public mental health system provides mental health treatment services to just 19 percent of the population that requires treatment. That leaves more than 80 percent of the people who would benefit from medication and psychotherapeutic healing tasked with the responsibility of seeking out private care.
It’s a responsibility that has a good and a bad side. Though it is disappointing to find that there is a long waiting list for public services and that more work is needed to get help, those who take the time to find the right private mental health treatment center will enjoy a far more comprehensive treatment program with improved odds of success.
