Non-Metropolitan and Metropolitan Trends in Mental Health Treatment Availability in Community Health and Community Mental Health Centers have been Released

 For this brief, HRSA provided historical data for community mental health centers (CMHCs) and community health centers (CHCs) – two types of federally funded sites that provide mental health care. Researchers at the Rural and Underserved Research Center found that the supply of CMHCs decreased substantially from 2000 to 2019 in non-metropolitan counties. However, the supply of CHCs offering mental health services increased substantially over the same time period.
