North Carolina Mental Health and Substance Use Statistics 2023

Like adolescents across the nation, teens in North Carolina and throughout the Southern states are struggling. Rates of teen mental health problems, suicidal ideation, and vaping are all on the rise in these states. Statistics show 16 percent of North Carolina teens have experienced a major depressive episode in the past year, and 1 in 10 have had a serious depressive episode. In addition, 41,000 North Carolina teens struggled with substance use disorder in the last year.

Yet among the teens in North Carolina who experience major depression, 80 percent did not receive any consistent mental health services, due in part to the lack of residential mental health treatment centers for teens in the state. As a result of this shortfall, families searching online for “teenage counseling near me,” “teen treatment in NC” or “teen mental health facilities in North Carolina” often find limited options and availability.
