Figure 8.10 is titled "Reasons for Not Receiving Treatment in the Past Year among Adults Aged 18 or Older with an Unmet Need for Treatment Who Did Not Receive Treatment: 2004." It is a bar graph, where the percentage among adults who did not receive treatment is shown on the horizontal axis, and the reasons for not receiving treatment are shown on the vertical axis.
Among adults with an unmet need for mental health treatment who did not receive treatment in the past year, 47.2 percent did not receive treatment because of cost or insurance issues, 37.6 percent because they did not feel the need for treatment or could handle the problem without treatment, 25.8 percent because of stigma, 19.9 percent because they did not know where to go for services, 16.1 percent because they did not have time, 11.9 percent because treatment would not help, 7.4 percent because of the fear of being committed or of having to take medicine, and 3.8 percent because of access barriers other than cost.
