How Does it Work?
Why should you screen for behavioral health?
More Americans than ever before are suffering from mental and emotional distress. According to a new study published in the journal Psychiatric Services, 3.4% of the U.S. population, or more than 8 million Americans, suffer from serious psychological distress (SPD).
Over 50,000 deaths occurred from Opioid related addictions in 2017
Less than 5% of physicians screen effectively for behavioral health conditions.
Over 20% of adults have a diagnosable behavioral health disorder annually.
50% of all lifetime cases of mental illness begin by age 14 and 75% by age 24.
Why would insurance pay for this?
