Mental Health

This issue examines the challenges and opportunities North Carolina faces in reforming its mental health, developmental disabilities, and substance abuse system. The policy forum includes a historical perspective on the state’s behavioral health delivery system, as well as articles on integrated care, crisis intervention and management, and community-based care. The forum is complemented by original research on the state’s mental health workforce and on depression and academic performance among college students. The issue concludes with an article on the Affordable Care Act and how it will change the availability of services to people with behavioral health problems.
