Details

The rising need for increased services and a scarcity of--mental health care calls for new approaches.

• One in every five adults in America experiences some form of a mental illness

• Nearly one in 20, or 13.6 million, adults in America live with a serious mental illness

• We aren't replacing retiring psychiatrists. Over 59% of US psychiatrists are aged 55 and older, yet only 4% of residents choose Psychiatry.

• Where psychiatrists practice is not necessarily where the patients are--most psychiatrists are in the East, California, and Texas

How can technology and innovation help with this situation, and create a happier, healthier population?
