Online Behavioral Health Services in Tennessee
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 Tennessee indicates that nearly 1 million adults in the state have a diagnosed mental health condition. The true number is even higher when you consider the number of residents who have not received an official diagnosis from a care provider. In addition, nearly 44% of adults report having symptoms of anxiety and depression. Unfortunately, Tennessee’s youth are on track for a similar fate. The Behavioral Health Barometer for Tennessee reports that over 12% of those aged 12-17 have experienced a Major Depressive Episode (MDE). That data was validated before COVID-19. The ramifications of the 2020-23 pandemic along with relentless sociopolitical unrest in the state will only compound the issue. Of that age group, NAMI states that approximately 60% go without care. In fact, in the entire state, an estimate 46% of all residents live in a community that does not have adequate access to mental health professionals. And therein lies the genesis of Kindbridge Online Behavioral Health Services. In a region where nearly 3.25 million people don’t have proper access to mental health professionals, Kindbridge recognized that something had to be done. Our organization has carefully chosen mental health professionals from Tennessee and the Southern U.S. to provide immediate counseling and therapy. You and/or your loved ones don’t have to wait to receive help. Kindbridge has created a welcoming and safe virtual environment where one can take the first step on their road to recovery and receive full support along the way.
