Online Behavioral Health Services in Mississippi
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 Mississippi indicates that just under 450,000 in the state – approximately 15% of the population – have a diagnosed mental health condition. The correct figure is undeniably higher when the number of residents who have not received an accepted diagnosis is accounted for. Furthermore, an estimated 43% of adults report having symptoms of anxiety and depression. Woefully, Mississippi youth are on a more concerning path. The mental health outcomes they have experienced (and will experience) due to COVID-19 lockdowns will echo for years. The Behavioral Health Barometer for Mississippi reports that over 11 percent of those aged 12-17 have experienced a Major Depressive Episode (MDE). A comparison to other U.S. states in the Kindbridge service area is of particular concern – the barrier to access to sufficient help. NAMI reports that an unfathomable 80% of all residents live in a community that does not have adequate access to mental health professionals. This lack of access to proper care far extends beyond that of our own home state of Tennessee, which at 46% is already of grave concern. The people of Mississippi deserve better.
Herein lies the motivation behind Kindbridge Online Behavioral Health Services.
In an area where almost 2.4 million people don’t have proper access to mental health professionals, Kindbridge recognized that something had to be done. Our organization has carefully selected mental health professionals from the Southern U.S. to provide immediate counseling and therapy. Those in need no longer have to wait to receive help. Kindbridge has designed a welcoming and safe virtual environment where you and/or loved ones can begin the road to recovery and receive comprehensive support along the way.
