POOR MENTAL HEALTH – ADULT
Why this is important: Good mental health enables a person to think and act productively, to cope with adversity, and to build strong relationships. Individuals with 14 or more days of poor mental health in a month would likely benefit from an intervention.
Definition: Percent of adults who self-reported that their mental health was not good on 14 or more days in the last 30 days.
