According to a recent study from Leafwell, Georgia ranks seventh when it comes to the worst access to mental health care.  Reportedly, 20.78% of US citizens live with a mental illness, which is equivalent to over 50 million people. Nationally, 45.3% receive treatment, 71.8% report that their needs are met and 89.2% are insured. 

Medical marijuana experts at Leafwell analyzed data from Mental Health America to determine which states provide the worst care for people living with mental illness. They used the following three factors to determine a score for each state: adults with AMI (any mental illness) who receive treatment; adults with AMI who report that their needs are met and adults with AMI who have medical insurance. 

Georgia was seventh on the list, scoring 65.23/100. Out of 1.4 million adults in the state who have a mental health illness, 82.6% have medical insurance, 70.9% have their needs met and 42.2% have received treatment.
