Socioeconomic issues: The more educated the population and the greater the percentage with health insurance, the lower the suicide rate. The more educated the population, the better the state's depression status.

Mental health policies: The more generous a state's mental health parity coverage (meaning the state provide health insurance coverage for mental health and substance abuse problems similar to general health coverage), the more people receive mental health services.

About the reports: The research looks at data from 2002-2006 and was conducted from July to November 2007. The report compares depression levels and suicide rates in all 50 states and the District of Columbia and uses the information to highlight solutions to improve states' mental health status. "Ranking America's Mental Health: An Analysis of Depression Across the States" was supported through an unrestricted educational grant from Wyeth Pharmaceuticals.
