Mental Health Treatment Admissions, Discharges, and Client Outcomes

"In the 2015 reporting period, six states and jurisdictions (Connecticut [adults only], the District of Columbia, Louisiana, Mississippi, Oklahoma, and Puerto Rico) reported a total of 417,443 admissions to MH-TEDS [Mental Health Treatment Episode Data Set]. [Table 7.1]:

"• Of admissions who began treatment prior to the 2015 reporting period, 69 percent of admissions received treatment in community programs, 57 percent in residential treatment centers, 43 percent in state psychiatric hospitals, and 31 percent in institutions under the justice system [Table 7.1].

People with Co-occurring Mental Health and Substance Use Disorders Receiving Mental Health Services

"A total of 720,987 individuals aged 12 and older with co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders were served in 2015 [Table 6.1a].

"• Among males who had co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders served in the 2015 reporting period, the most frequently reported diagnoses were depressive disorders and schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders (25 percent each); for females, they were depressive disorders (33 percent) [Table 6.1c].

Likelihood That Young People with Diagnosed Mental Health Conditions Will be Put on Long Term Opioid Therapy

"Of the 1,000,453 opioid recipients (81.7%) with at least 6 months of follow-up, 51.1% were female, and the median age was 17 years (interquartile range, 16-18 years). Among these adolescents, the estimated cumulative incidence of LTOT [Long Term Opioid Therapy] after first opioid receipt was 1.1 (95% CI, 1.1-1.2) per 1000 recipients within 1 year, 3.0 (95% CI, 2.8-3.1) per 1000 recipients within 3 years, 8.2 (95% CI, 7.8-8.6) per 1000 recipients within 6 years, and 16.1 (95% CI, 14.2-18.0) per 1000 recipients within 10 years.

Likelihood That Young People with Diagnosed Mental Health Conditions Will be Put on Long Term Opioid Therapy

"In this nationwide study of commercially insured adolescents, LTOT [Long Term Opioid Therapy] was relatively uncommon. The estimated incidence of LTOT receipt was 3.0 per 1000 adolescents within 3 years of filling an initial opioid prescription. Although adolescents with a wide range of preexisting mental health conditions and treatments were modestly more likely than adolescents without those conditions or treatments to receive an initial opioid, the former had substantially higher rates of subsequent transitioning to LTOT.

Mental Illness Among Adults in the US

"In 2016, an estimated 44.7 million adults aged 18 or older had AMI [Any Mental Illness] in the past year (Figure 54). This number represents 18.3 percent of adults in the United States. An estimated 10.4 million adults in the nation had SMI [Serious Mental Illness] in the past year, and 34.3 million adults had AMI excluding SMI in the past year. The number of adults with SMI represents 4.2 percent of adults in 2016, and the number of adults with AMI excluding SMI represents 14.0 percent of adults.
