The link between mental and physical health

  • The cost of care is 75% higher for people with co-occurring mental and physical health issues than those without a behavioral health issue​
  • Depression has been linked to serious chronic illnesses—including diabetes, cancer, cardiovascular disease, asthma, and arthritis
  • The mortality rate from cancer and heart disease is higher among people with depression or other mental health conditions​
  • About 1 in 4 US adults suffer from a diagnosable mental disorder each year​

The barriers to effective mental healthcare

  • 85% of the nation’s mental health provider shortages are in rural communities
  • 42% of surveyed Americans with a mental health disorder described cost and poor insurance coverage as their primary barrier to care
  • 11 years: the average delay between symptom onset and receiving care
  • 25 days: the average wait time to see a professional for an initial evaluation

Even when care is accessible within a community, too often it is fragmented and uncoordinated between providers and specialists, making follow-up and communication difficult for patients. This means missed or neglected treatment and worse health outcomes.

  • Traditional employee assistance programs (EAPs) feature historically low utilization and satisfaction (3-5%) and these are not connected to primary care
  • Specialty mental health companies often rely on inconsistent staffing, are not connected to primary care, and vary in terms of insurance, copays, and subscription models
