Why Today’s Approach to Behavioral Health is Failing

Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, an estimated 44 million Americans were living with mental illness and nearly 60 percent were not receiving treatment. When you add in the traumatic nature of the pandemic, the related economic constriction, and the extended social isolation experienced by many Americans, the pandemic’s impact could increase the prevalence of behavioral health conditions by as much as fifty percent.

At the same time, we’ve seen how physical and behavioral health care have largely functioned as separate parts in the modern health care system, creating a mental health crisis that has only been exacerbated by COVID-19. Our brand new infographic below explains why a new approach is needed and why bridging the gap between behavioral and physical health is the key to delivering better health outcomes, reducing the total cost of care, and improving consumer satisfaction.
