Published Tuesday, March 9, 2010

The study was commissioned by the National Association of Psychiatric Health Systems (NAPHS) to estimate the economic contribution of inpatient psychiatric hospitals and residential treatment centers to each state economy and the national economy in terms of output, employment, and taxes. Mark Covall, President and CEO of NAPHS, said in a press release that, "investing in inpatient behavioral healthcare is a win-win situation for those who so desperately need this care and for the economy where job creation is a top priority." Al Dobson presented the study at the NAPHS 2010 Annual Meeting on March 9, 2010.
