Mental Health America’s County and State Data Map
Mental Health America’s County and State Data Map is a dashboard that geographically visualizes data from over 2.6 million mental health screens taken at MHAScreening.org in 2020 and 2021. The interactive maps are able to identify the current need for mental health resources at a pace and scale that was not possible before.
