The nation’s mental health crisis is worsening with the COVID-19 pandemic. About two in five adults reported struggling with their mental health, including substance use, in the last year. That’s twice the number of Americans who typically experience a mental illness in any given year. It’s time to rethink mental health care.
How can our system of care shorten the ten year average to treat people after their first symptoms? What would the ideal mental health care system look like? What policies need to change to create it?
