About this talk

The demand for mental healthcare has consistently been on the rise. There is a clear supply and demand imbalance in the behavioral healthcare delivery system where the number of people needing care far outweighs the system's ability to deliver it. By 2025, the gap for mental health providers is estimated to be 250,000 and will only widen as we continue to break down the stigma associated with needing help. How can we take steps to curb this grim future state now? Payers, providers and employers alike have critical roles in addressing this growing mental health epidemic. What part will each party play as we move to a future of greater accessibility, affordability and quality of mental health solutions? These leaders will explore innovation in addressing the mental health supply-demand imbalance. WHAT YOU'LL LEARN - Understand the root cause of the current mental healthcare gaps - How will each player in the health ecosystem have to reorient current business models to solve the crisis? - What current solutions are showing promising outcomes? - Review the important role of the employer in addressing access
