WELCOME TO THE MYLLOC MENTAL HEALTH LEARNING COMMUNITY
Welcome to the My Lifelong Learning Online Community (MyLLOC), focusing on Mental Health.
In 2017, almost 20% (or 807,000) adults in Wisconsin struggled with a mental health condition; nearly half of them had a co-occurring substance use disorder 
In the five-year period from 2011 - 2014, rates of severe youth depression increased from 5.9% to 8.2% 
In 2017, 3.88% (or 170,000) adults in Wisconsin had serious thoughts of suicide  Each year, over 700 Wisconsin residents die by suicide 
Patients, in particular, rural patients, experience issues related to accessibility, whether it be distance traveled to a provider or inadequate insurance; availability, including lack of available treatment providers, treatment types (ie, inpatient, individual, or intensive community services); and acceptability of stigma 
In 2017, one out of 5 adults in Wisconsin report that they are not able to get the treatment that they need whether it be inpatient treatment/counseling, outpatient treatment/counseling, or prescription medication 
Only a quarter of adolescents with major depression in Wisconsin received any mental health treatment in 2017 
The goal of this Mental Health learning community is to provide a forum for health professionals across disciplines and professions to learn about and discuss best practice to develop, maintain, and expand mental health services for patients across Wisconsin.
I hope you enjoy participating and learning in MyLLOC Mental Health. Your feedback is always welcome at firstname.lastname@example.org.
