The crisis of adolescent mental health: creating new solutions for teens and families

Adolescent mental health concerns have reached a new scale in recent years, with serious implications for teens, their families, and society. A survey from the CDC found that in the 10 years leading up to the pandemic, feelings of persistent sadness and hopelessness increased by about 40% among young people.1

There is an increased urgency to understand the drivers behind this crisis and develop accessible and scalable solutions to reach those in need. Addressing these complex issues requires a full-societal approach. Big Health, the leading provider of digital therapeutics and evidence-based programs for mental health, convened a digital roundtable to discuss the adolescent mental health crisis and the need to expand access to care.

Our speakers discussed:
– The drivers and impact of the youth mental health crisis
– The power of technology to increase access to care
– How to create a diverse benefits offering for the whole family
– Emerging evidence-based care modalities, including a solution from Big Health
