Mental Health Treatment Utilization in America: 5 Findings from National Center for Health Statistics Report


The percentage of adults who received any mental health treatment increased, women were more likely than men to receive treatment, and 3 more key findings.

"The percentage of U.S. adults who had received any mental health treatment in the past 12 months increased from 2019 to 2021, driven largely by a nearly 5 percentage point increase among adults aged 18–44. In 2021, nearly 1 in 4 adults aged 18–44 (23.2%) received treatment.," wrote Emily P. Terlizzi, MPH, and Jeannine S. Schiller, MPH, from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS), in a recent report. The pair used data from the 2019–2021 National Health Interview Survey to describe trends in the percentage of adults aged 18–44 years who had received any mental health treatment, defined as "having either taken medication for mental health, received counseling or therapy, or both in the past 12 months."
