Mental health care gap in Wisconsin

MADISON (WKOW) — Statistics show about one in five people will experience a mental illness.

According to a 2017 report from the Wisconsin Department of Health Services, more than half of the adults who need mental health treatment aren’t getting it.

Jerry Halverson, chief medical officer with Rogers Behavioral Health, visited Wake Up Wisconsin Saturday morning to talk about the gap in care in Wisconsin and the risks associated with it.
