- 1 in 5 adults experiences a mental health condition every year. Yet only 38% of adults receive needed treatment.
- 1 in 5 children have a mental health disorder, but less than 20% of them receive needed treatment.
- A growing number of Idahoans get help only when they reach a crisis point — attempting suicide, getting arrested, having a dangerous psychotic episode or ending up homeless.
- Public help isn't forthcoming. For many years, Idaho has ranked 49th in per capita spending on mental health out of all 50 states, Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia.
NAMI Boise's various support programs rely on your donations to proactively help those affected by mental illness.
