Improved mental health in the United States has become one of the most vital problems facing the current generation. More and more hospitals have opened inpatient and outpatient units of psychiatry; literature has been published; public health has attempted to educate the laymen about mental health; and the National Institute of Mental Health has encouraged and supported each new mental health facility.

What progress in patient care has been demonstrated in the state of Georgia in the past five years?
