The Mental Health Imperative
As public understanding of mental health issues and disorders grows, the demand for behavioral health services will continue to increase. This growing market must prepare to serve the more than 40 million Americans (one in five) with a mental health condition—56 percent of them currently do not receive treatment.
This sheer volume of unmet needs, coupled with the shortage of qualified clinical providers, makes retention and professional development of the current workforce a critical need. Not only will organizations be challenged to retain and provide support to today's mental health providers, but it’s vital to efficiently recruit, onboard, and train teams of behavioral health support staff and assistants to ensure the best patient care.
At HealthStream, we understand that behavioral health services and the required competencies may look a little different from other providers. That’s why some of the largest behavioral health organizations in the country have partnered with HealthStream to mitigate risk, improve staff competence, and increase overall efficiency.
