Mental Health

1 in 5 youth have a Mental Health condition and over 50% of these youth do not receive treatment. Almost half (46%) of youth in the US have some type of traumatic experience.  Locally our statistics are as follows:
• 7,297 reports of child abuse and neglect in North Dakota in 2018
• 52,000 North Dakota residents reported a substance abuse disorder in 2016 which is slightly higher than the national average
