Mental Health in Madison

Mental health is an important issue in Madison. The city is home to the Mendota Mental Health Institute—the first mental health facility in Wisconson.

According to the hospital, the number of young people who need mental health care has increased by 77% in the last 10 years. However, the hospital has to turn away hundreds of local children who need mental health counseling due to insufficient inpatient beds.
