Massachusetts Mental Health Statistics
According to surveys, one in five adults experience mental illness in Massachusetts every year, and approximately 1,155,000 adults in the state have a mental health condition.
In response to this crisis, state officials have been working on a comprehensive plan to improve access to mental health care in the state.
The Massachusetts Association for Behavioral Health Care has emphasized that this is just the beginning in what is anticipated to be a prolonged effort to improve mental health care.
Behavioral Health Helpline
The Massachusetts Behavioral Health Help Line directly links people to a comprehensive array of mental health services available in Massachusetts.
In the first three months of its creation, the helpline had more than 6,000 calls, according to state data. More than a quarter of those calls resulted in referrals to mental health services.

There are 25 centers that extend 24/7 mobile crisis services to people facing mental health crises, irrespective of insurance coverage or financial means.

At Bedrock, we offer medication management as part of our mental health treatment programs.
Medication management for mental illness involves the administration of psychiatric medications to alleviate symptoms, stabilize mood, and improve overall mental health.
Before prescribing any medication, our mental health providers conduct an assessment of the individual’s health history, symptoms, and any co-occurring conditions.
Factors such as the person’s response to medications, medical history, and lifestyle are also taken into account.
Medication management involves collaboration between psychiatrists, primary care physicians, and other healthcare providers. We promote communication to ensure coordinated care.
