Currently in the United States, one in five adults have experienced a behavioral health disorder according to the National Alliance on Mental Illness.
Unfortunately, access to mental and behavioral health care in many rural parts of the U.S. is simply unavailable due to a national shortage of mental health professionals. Patients in these rural areas may not know where to seek help and may worry about the stigma attached to seeking mental health care.
