Research has shown the last few years have been the most stressful people have ever experienced in their working lives, and our cumulative mental health is taking a toll.
Pre-COVID-19, seeking mental health services was typically limited by stigma, cost, and availability of providers. One in five adults in America experiences some type of mental illness each year, yet as recently as 2019, Fewer than half of people with mental illness received any treatment at all. Since then, demand for mental health and addiction services has skyrocketed, and the need has exceeded capacity and the availability of providers.
