Mental health heavily influences our quality of life. So it makes sense that mental health, just like physical health, is a focus area of our collective community improvement work. Together we provide tools to new families, improve access to mental health services, support recovery, and lower the rate of death, disease, and disability among those with mental illnesses. We work with national campaigns to reduce stigmas and highlight local resources for those seeking treatment as we strive to eliminate health disparities and provide equitable access to health services. To read more from the Data Insight for mental health in Garrett County, click here:
