Cook: Breaking down barriers to treatment

Posted by: Andi Sommers  | Friday, March 26, 2021

Hoosiers facing a mental health issue can often feel as though they are trapped and unsure where to go to receive treatment.

In the past year, more than 15% of adolescents and 8% of adults in Indiana reported having a depressive episode. We know depression and anxiety impacts individuals' overall wellbeing, and if left untreated could lead to suicide or other disorders. To help Hoosiers access care quicker, a bill I am sponsoring this session could help break down barriers and make seeking treatment for mental health conditions more accessible.
