    (page 9) Note that 2010 "Health Professional Shortage Area" (HPSA) meant less than 1 provider for every 10,000 people.  

    In 2020, federal documents state that HPSAs mean less than 1 provider for every 30,000 people.  

    "3,291 Mental Health HPSAs with 80 million people living in them. It would take 5,338 practitioners to meet their need for mental health providers (a population to practitioner ratio of 10,000:1)."
