Online Behavioral Health Services in Nevada
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 Nevada indicates that over 474,000 adults in the state – approximately 15% 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 assessment is taken into consideration. In addition, approximately 41% of adults report having symptoms of anxiety and depression. Sadly, Nevada’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 the state reports that over 13% of those aged 12-17 have experienced a Major Depressive Episode (MDE).
Furthermore, given the prevalence of the gaming industry in Nevada, a number of people suffer from gambling addiction. According to the Nevada Council on Problem Gambling, an estimated 6 percent of Nevada residents have a gambling problem, with only a few hundred per annum receiving help through the state’s programs.
It’s the traditional lack of access to adequate help has been troubling. NAMI reports that an estimate 80% of all residents live in a community that does not have adequate access to mental health professionals. 80 percent is dramatically higher when compared to all other US
states. The necessity of a solution has reached critical proportions.
And therein lies the creation of Kindbridge Online Behavioral Health Services, and why our integration into Nevada has become so very important.

Our organization has carefully chosen mental health professionals in the USA to provide immediate counseling and therapy. You and/or the people your responsible for 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.
