Each year, nearly 1 in 4 Americans will experience a need for mental health treatment. While mental health comprises of approximately 10% of all emergency department (ED) visits, most do not staff mental health professionals and are rarely equipped to properly assess and treat behavioral health patients. This lack of access to adequate care is causing significant slowdowns and can have serious consequences for both the patient and those around them. Tele-Behavioral Health programs empower hospitals to improve response times and lessen the burdens of care by enabling seamless communication between emergency physicians, patients and mental health professionals.
