Mental Health in Louisville

Louisville, Kentucky is considered one of the worst places to live with a mental health condition. Louisville ranks at 422 of the 460 metropolitan statistical areas. This ranking has been climbing for the last three years since it had dropped from 418 in 2011 to 416 in 2012. Being ranked 422 on the list of metropolitan statistical areas suggests that there are more people living with some form of mental health condition than there are healthy people. While it is difficult to determine the exact number of people that live with mental health conditions in the Louisville area, we can get an idea by looking at how many people take advantage of some sort of service for their mental health.

The National Alliance on Mental Health (NAMI) had cited Kentucky as having one of the worst public psychiatric care systems in the United States. According to NAMI’s website, more than 40% of adults and children within state borders do not receive attention from a professional due to limited funding and local efforts. 


The site currently states that over $200 million dollars have been cut from mental health services since 2009. Data reported by NAMI also explains that about $45 million was cut from programs for adults vulnerable group homes, supported living services, crisis intervention teams and transitional housing for people with mental health issues has been cut. This information can be used to suggest that Louisville residents are not getting the assistance they need to receive the proper medical treatment or support they require.

Louisville’s adult psychiatric facilities are no better than the public mental health system. The two most notable psychiatric hospitals in Louisville are Southeast State Hospital and Eastern State Hospital. A 2009 report by USA Today explains that more patients are being treated at local clinics for various reasons including smaller ward sizes and easier access to care in their community. However, this means individuals aren’t receiving adequate care due to a lack of resources in these outpatient facilities.
