Online Behavioral Health Services in North Carolina
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 North Carolina incites a call-to-action for individuals, households, and companies who care about their human resources. In North Carolina, data indicates that nearly 1.5 million in the state have a diagnosed mental health condition. The precise values are higher when the number of residents who have not received an official diagnosis is accounted for. Unfortunately, each state’s youth are on an even worse path as the mental health consequences they have experienced (and will experience) due to the COVID-19 lockdowns will resonate for years. The Behavioral Health Barometer for North Carolina reports that over 15% of those aged 12-17 have experienced a Major Depressive Episode (MDE). One comparison to other U.S. states in the Kindbridge service area is of added concern – the lack of access to adequate help. NAMI reports that an estimated 25% and 44% of all residents (respectively) live in a community that does not have adequate access to mental health professionals.
And therein lies the motivating force behind Kindbridge Online Behavioral Health Services.
Between the two states, where almost 5 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 created a welcoming and safe virtual environment where you and/or loved ones can start upon the road to recovery and receive full support along the way.
