An overwhelming 38.5% of Indiana adults reported having symptoms of depression and/or anxiety last year, according to the National Alliance on Mental Illness. Needless to say, that’s more than 3 out of every 8 state resident adults. Reports of depression among Indiana’s youth also rate higher than the national average. Worse yet, more than half of Indiana residents seeking help for mental health either don’t find it, or receive inadequate assistance.
