Mental healthcare in North Carolina is broken. Suicide rates are rising, emergency rooms are filled with children in crisis and the wait times to see a specialist are unacceptable. Our state has fallen short in providing a system that is accessible and accountable for its outcomes.
Meanwhile, our government says we have a surplus of over $6 billion, on top of having access to once-in-a-lifetime unspent pandemic relief funding. We must send a clear message: the time is now to invest in our state’s mental health.
We’re bringing together leaders from Novant Health, the NC Chamber, the North Carolina Psychiatric Association, Cone Health and UNC Health for a virtual town hall discussing mental health on October 7th to discuss these issues. Join us to learn more. Click below to register.
