Article from American Psychological Association by Heather Stringer
Heading into 2024, mental health providers across the U.S. are grappling with an urgent need to meet the skyrocketing demand for their services. This surge in demand is driven by a variety of factors, including the ongoing pandemic and an increased societal recognition of mental health issues. The situation is further exacerbated by a significant shortage of psychiatrists and other mental health professionals.
In response to these challenges, innovators within the field are exploring new interventions that diverge from traditional therapy models. Digital therapeutics, for example, are being leveraged to provide support for underserved populations and help bridge the gap caused by the provider shortage. Some of the fastest-growing companies in the behavioral health industry have differentiated themselves by targeting niche populations and providing tailored solutions.
