mental health

posted on Tuesday, September 25, 2018

Here's a snapshot of how CHCs are helping to fill critical gaps in mental health and substance use disorder care. The growth in CHC patients with mental health and substance use disorders (SUD) cannot solely be attributed to the rising rates of mental health and substance use disorder as a national trend.  Rather, community health centers are filling gaps in care related to mental health and SUD that when previously unaddressed by the health care system.   

 Key figures (2010-2017):

  • 379% increase in patients diagnosed with the "common cold" of behavioral health (depression)
  • 426% increase in visits for patients with depression and other mood disorders
  • 621% increase in patients diagnosed with anxiety disorders including PTSD
  • 802% increase in visits for anxiety disorders including PTSD
  • 816% increase in patients diagnosed with alcohol and substance use disorders(excluding tobacco)
