FOR MENTAL HEALTH IN SOLANO COUNTY
After taking a closer look at the 2019 Solano County Needs Assessment data and other publicly available data to help inform the SolanoConnex project, such as the 2018 California Health Interview Study (CHIS), the 2017-2019 California Healthy Kids Survey (CHKS), Kidsdata.org, and California’s Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development (OSHPD), we found that approximately 1 in 4 people in Solano County who suffer from mild or moderate mental health conditions have unmet mental health needs. This means around 30,000 out of 100,000 sufferers do not get the mental health services they need.1 2
