About this Resource:
Region IV is the largest HHS region, comprised of eight states and 26% of the U.S. population. These states have large rural populations, high poverty rates, and face racial and cultural disparities in care. In addition the Southeast states have considerable clinical, geographic, workforce, and health system differences and often score below the median on state rankings from advocacy groups including the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) and Mental Health America (MHA). These factors are important considerations when planning mental health care and support services; however, understanding these influences separately can be challenging.
The Southeast MHTTC Data Visualization Project provides information on Region IV priorities in an easy to understand graphical format.
