The State of Mental Health in Alaska

Ranking in at #45 in the United States for mental healthcare, Alaska’s Division of Behavioral Health (DBH) aims to resolve major concerns surrounding both substance abuse and mental health care, including but not limited to: suicide prevention, 24/7 emergency behavioral health response, and increased access to treatment and mental health counselors. Through increasing awareness, easing access to therapists, psychologists, and school counselors, and developing the psychiatric workforce, the DBH is armed with the initiatives necessary to increase prevention of mental health illness and substance abuse, and to make counseling treatment more accessible for all Alaskans. You can find more information on current initiatives and resources, and access the Alaska Division of Behavioral Health’s site here.

Opioid Crisis in Alaska

DBH has developed opioid treatment programs available to any Alaskan that suffers from substance abuse. DBH has allocated $12 million to make treatments more accessible. This has made it more feasible for those suffering through substance abuse to also connect with licensed counselors and therapists, to help them map out their treatment plan, and support them on their road to recovery.

The Advisory Board on Alcoholism & Drug Abuse (ABADA) and the Alaska Mental Health Board (AMHB) are responsible for providing accessible resources to all Alaskans who wish to lead healthy and productive lives. You can learn more about these agencies here, and check out their resources here.

If you are LGBTQ+ and you need support, contact The Trevor Project at 1-866-488-7386.
