Mental illness affects over 47 million Americans — 14% of the population. However, the federal government has identified 5,820 Health Professional Shortage Areas (HPSAs) nationwide where those dealing with mental and substance abuse disorders are unable to receive adequate psychiatric care. More than 6,400 mental health practitioners are required to address this shortfall.*
