According to the Oklahoma Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services(ODMHSAS), between 700,000 and 900,000 Oklahomans are experiencing and in need of treatment for brain disease, mental illness, and substance use disorders. Yet the state ranks 46th in the nation for state-sponsored behavioral health services.
As Oklahomans search for assistance, many turn to their public libraries to locate services and information.
