WASHINGTON - An advocacy group says Ohio's mental health services for adults are among the nation's best.
Ohio is one of only five states to earn a B from the National Alliance on Mental Illness, in the group's first national survey of public mental health care in 15 years. There were no A grades.
The results are broken down into four categories. Ohio gets an A for access to information and Bs for infrastructure, services and support during recovery.
The report calls Ohio a pacesetter among states that have large, county-based systems for providing mental health services.
But it faults the state for not having a law requiring insurers to give mental health care the same consideration as physical health care.
