Kansas Mental Health Consumer-Run Initiatives saves taxpayers money every day. According to statistics, it costs a mere $13 a person per day to provide mental health support, compared to $428 a day for treatment in a state hospital. On average, people with mental illness who utilize consumer-supported resources are three times less likely to be hospitalized for mental health reasons than before they joined a consumer-run initiative."
Why is this important?
One Mental Health Consumer-Run initiative in Kansas saves the State thousands of dollars each day. Support these initiatives with taxpayer dollars and help individuals with mental illness stay in their communities.
