Online Behavioral Health Services in Georgia
Are you struggling with your own emotional well being? Are you concerned about the mental health of a loved one? You're not alone.
Data from the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) for Georgia indicates that over 1.4 million adults in the state – approximately 13% of the population – have a diagnosed mental health condition. The accurate number is even higher when the number of residents who have not received an official diagnosis is taken into consideration. In addition, approximately 44% of adults report having symptoms of anxiety and depression. Sadly, Georgia’s youth are on a similar trajectory, possibly worse when the mental health ramifications of the COVID-19 lockdowns are accounted for. The Behavioral Health Barometer for Georgia reports that over 12% of those aged 12-17 have experienced a Major Depressive Episode (MDE). While the statistics are not dissimilar to other U.S. states in the Kindbridge service area, the traditional lack of access to adequate help has been troubling. NAMI reports that an estimated 45% of all residents live in a community that does not have adequate access to mental health professionals. That barrier to proper care is on par with our own home state of Tennessee.
And therein lies the creation of Kindbridge Online Behavioral Health Services.
In a region where over 4.9 million people don’t have proper access to mental health professionals, Kindbridge recognized that something needed to be done. Our organization has carefully chosen mental health professionals from the Southern U.S. to provide immediate counseling and therapy. You and/or the important people in your life don’t have to wait to receive help. Kindbridge has created a welcoming and safe virtual environment where clients and patients can take the first step on their road to recovery and receive full support along the way.
