Helping North Carolina Heal

North Carolina has a diverse population with a wide range of health care needs and life experiences.

According to the Kaiser Family Foundation, a quarter of North Carolina adults report symptoms of anxiety and depression, and more than 20% of adolescents report having a major depressive episode in the past year. Additionally, substance use disorder diagnoses are increasing, and too many patients experience barriers to receiving care for their mental health.

The UNC School of Medicine is committed to serving North Carolinians from all walks of life, including caring for patients, educating future mental health professionals, and finding solutions to our state’s most pressing needs through impactful research.
