Welcome to the CDC Mental Health Work Group Web site, which includes basic public health information on mental health.

Graphic of image reaching for the stars While CDC is not a mental health agency, staff members from across CDC whose work relates to mental health established the mental health work group, and this Web site, to support CDC's overall public health efforts. We hope you find this Web site useful, and that you will feel free to share suggestions for its further development.
