The NAMI Mental Health Report Card: Grading the States 2009

The National Alliance on Mentally Ill Mental Illness came out with their report card on how each state is taking care of mental health issues. The national average is a big, fat D. As the kids would say, "epic FAIL!".

Only 6 states scored a B (sorry, no A's): Connecticut, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New York, and Oklahoma. Nice to see in Maryland we moved from a C in 2006 to a B.

What prevents us (all states) from doing better?
