Mental Health in Louisville

Louisville recently created an Office of Addiction Services to combat the opioid crisis. The city is suing three wholesale opioid distributors for neglecting to report suspicious shipments. Any money from the lawsuits will fund addiction treatment, education, and law enforcement.

A 2014 report estimates Louisville’s suicide death rate is 13 per 100,000 people. City areas with the highest suicide rates are also affected by unemployment, poverty, and a lack of social connection. 

Many retirees in Kentucky may lose mental health services soon due to issues with the state pension. As of January 2018, the state is about $39 billion short of the funds needed to cover pension and health care obligations over the next three decades. To cover these costs, Representative Jerry Miller of Louisville has co-sponsored a bill to allow casino gaming in Kentucky.
