Mental Health in Seattle

There are many resources that are available to people who need mental health resources in Seattle, but there is also a lot of fear and stigma around getting treatment. One study found that 60% of people with severe mental illness did not have access to the care they needed. Another study found that stigma against people who have bipolar disorder or schizophrenia has increased over time, while care-seeking among those with the same conditions has decreased.

The studies also suggest that it may be too late to close these gaps because they are already deeply ingrained into society.

The mental health statistic in Seattle shows that the most strident opposition to mentally ill people is in neighborhoods with high concentrations of people who are already struggling, such as low-income areas. This means that the stigma against the mentally ill persists despite many studies highlighting how serious mental illness can be and how it can impact anyone regardless of their income or background.



People are often wary of those who have mental health conditions, but Seattle residents also fear that they will become the next victim of a crime. This is why many people do not seek care despite negative public opinions towards those with mental illness.
