Mental healthcare has never been more important.

Discover how virtual mental healthcare is meeting an unprecedented demand

Even before the global pandemic, mental health challenges were on the rise

Prior to the pandemic, the World Health Organization estimated that 1 in 4 people would experience a mental health challenge in their lifetime. In the United States, that number has now soared. In May, nearly half (47%) of survey respondents1 said their mental health had been negatively impacted by COVID-19. And that number is growing.

The crisis is real

$201 billion is spent on mental health in the United States annually, even before the pandemic2

46.6 million American adults (aged 18 or older) have some type of mental illness and 11.2 million have a debilitating mental illness3

70% of those with mental health conditions have a medical comorbidity4

In April, telehealth claims were up by 8,300% and the number one diagnosis was mental health5

Companies, healthcare organizations and leaders around the world have made this issue a top priority and are taking action to get people the help they need. That’s where Teladoc Health comes in.

The response

Consumers have embraced the virtual care experience. In a recent poll, two-thirds of respondents said the pandemic has increased their willingness to try telehealth, and virtual care interactions are predicted to exceed 1 billion in 2020.6 Most employees think their employers should provide virtual care benefits as an option.
