High Health Costs
Nearly 1 in 5 Americans have a mental health condition. According to an Open Minds Market Intelligence Report, spending on mental health treatment and services reached $225 billion in 2019.
Americans experiencing anxiety and depression is up — 42% of U.S. adults reported symptoms, up from 11% in previous years, according to a December (2020) survey from the U.S. Census Bureau.
Access to care can be prohibitively expensive — even more so than physical health costs. An hour-long traditional therapy session can range from $65 to $250 for those without insurance.
More than 112 million Americans live in areas where mental health providers are scarce. States like Missouri, Arizona, South Dakota, Montana, and Washington are among those with low rates when it comes to meeting the mental health needs of residents. On a national level, research shows that the U.S. is likely to continue to experience a shortage of mental health professionals through 2025. Customized Podcasts can bridge the gap and provide care to those who either do not have access to therapy or those who are afraid of the stigma of mental health care treatments.
