A thought leadership piece, “2019 will bring a transformation in the delivery of mental healthcare” by SilverCloud Health’s CEO Ken Cahill, is featured in Becker’s Hospital Review. In the article, Cahill discusses how the new year will support a new approach towards removing the barriers that prevent patients from accessing mental health services, including a shortage of clinical resources and ongoing stigma concerns.
Today, approximately one in five adults, or about 44 million people, suffer from mental illness in the United States, and this number is expected to increase in the years ahead. With shrinking availability of mental health providers and resources to treat these individuals, the gap between demand and supply will continue to grow.
In 2019 Cahill believes that we will witness a new wave of evidence-based digital care solutions that are filling this massive void in the market by transforming care delivery. Designed to bridge the current gaps commonly experienced while seeking care, digital mental health platforms effectively remove the barriers that prevent patients from accessing services, expanding entry to care while providing effective, accessible and affordable mental health resources for all.
