Removing Stigma, Simplifying Access to Mental Healthcare
The U.S. is in the midst of a mental health crisis. One in five adults is struggling with a mental health condition at any given time, yet fewer than half of them receive any sort of treatment for their issue.
That’s because a shortfall of providers, extremely narrow insurance networks, high costs, long wait times and the stigma of seeking treatment create major roadblocks for people in need of care. The ripple effects are wreaking havoc in the home, workplace and community.
BY THE NUMBERS
Mental illness can be attributed to $193.2 billion in lost earnings per year in America.
