There is a mental health crisis underway in the United States. From the rising rates of substance abuse orders to explosions of community violence in historically disenfranchised communities, it is clear there needs to be a change in strategy to address the root causes of the mental health epidemic.
In addition to the growing crisis manifesting as a critical loss of human capital, the United States expenditure on mental health services continues to rise annually, posing a burden on the system and eventually causing budget cuts to other healthcare services that are just as important.
In addition, the lack of integration of primary care and mental health care allows for the proliferation of chronic mental illness that in turn manifests as emergency room visits and the increased utilization of emergency psychiatric services. Causing an even larger burden on hospitals and staff.
