Mental health has received less attention than the opioid crisis, but it is equally important. From 2000 to 2016, the suicide rate jumped 30 percent. Even more troubling, between 2006 and 2016 the suicide rate for 10- to 17-year-olds increased 70 percent. Many people with mental health problems are not getting the treatment that they need. There is a severe shortage of psychiatrists, particularly child psychiatrists, and rural areas are very poorly served. There are known remedies for this — school-based mental health services, higher salaries for mental health providers to reduce shortages, and more rigorous parity enforcement.
