Number of People Receiving Mental Health Inpatient and Residential Services

Notes: Data as of April 30 for both years.
The 2010 data presented in this figure include facilities that accepted adults aged 18-64 for treatment, or if that information was missing, facilities that had inpatient or residential clients aged 18-64. The 2014 data presented in this figure includes facilities that accepted young adults aged 18-25 and adults aged 26-64. Also, the data from both years understates the number of individuals receiving services because the data only include facilities that reported client/patient counts for themselves. The data from both years also excludes facilities that indicated that the best category to describe the facility type was a “Residential treatment center for children.”
