More than 46 million Americans live with a mental illness, yet only half of those Americans receive treatment. Even fewer people receive high-quality care that would give them the best treatment possible. This tool is designed by RAND researchers to help connect mental health systems, policy leaders, and decisionmakers with resources and evidence-based solutions that could help transform the complex mental health landscape in the United States.
To create this tool, RAND researchers conducted an extensive analysis of mental health systems processes, policies, and solutions supported by both scientific and anecdotal evidence, as well as input from more than 30 experts around the country. They provide links to the evidence underpinning each solution and examples of each solution in action to show what has worked for others.
