WASHINGTON, Nov. 29 /PRNewswire/ --

Details: Depression is a devastating illness that affects more than 19 million Americans. Despite its prevalence, depression often goes undiagnosed and untreated. Ranking America's Mental Health is a first-of-its-kind study examining the statistical relationship between a variety of access-to-care measures and mental health outcomes for depression. Mental Health America will unveil the findings of this study and present a ranking of depression across the states.

The depression rankings were based on the percent of adolescents and adults with depression, the percent of adults with serious psychological distress and reported mental health days. The data come from nationally representative surveys conducted by the United States government.
