Online Behavioral Health Services in Texas
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 Texas indicates that nearly 3.4 million adults in the state have a diagnosed mental health condition. That’s approximately 12% of the entire population. The precise number is even higher when the number of residents who have not received an official assessment is taken into consideration. In addition, more than 43% of adults report having symptoms of anxiety and depression.
What’s more concerning, is that youth in Texas are on a similar track. The mental health ramifications of the COVID-19 lockdowns have ignited an already alarming problem. To date, it’s reported that over 13% of those aged 12-17 have experienced a Major Depressive Episode
(MDE). Further, over 60% of this group did not receive any care in the last year. As a result, they are entering (or preparing to enter) adulthood with foundational problems that will echo into their post-secondary experience and beyond.
It’s the lack of access to adequate help has been particularly troubling. NAMI reports that an estimated 53% of all Texans (15.18 million people) live in a community that does not have adequate access to mental health professionals. Think about this for a minute – more than half of the state’s population doesn’t even have access to help. For this exact reason, Kindbridge Online Behavioral Health Services has stepped up.
