Mental Health Distress

Mental Health Distress is measured as the percent of Arizonans who reported 14 or more days of poor mental health in the last 30 days.

The World Health Organization describes mental health distress as an inability to value oneself, cope with normal stresses of life, work productively, and to add value to the community. Mental health is a significant quality-of-life concern. It affects relationships, daily living, and capacity to work. It is among the factors associated with suicidal risk, along with personality, social factors, and life-threatening factors.

Mental Health Distress data are updated annually and are available for the following localities:

  • Nation
  • States
