Mental health is a popular topic in news headlines, with good reason. A Mental Health America report tells us there are over 44 million adults in America suffering from mental illness. Similarly, the rate of youth experiencing a Major Depressive Episode increased from 11.93% to 12.63% within one year. In fact, it seems youth are particularly troubled. The American Psychological Association (APA) reports that Gen Z is the most likely generation to report poor mental health. For mental health therapists in Carbondale and across the country, this raises an important question: Will more people accept help through therapy?
41 Main Street
Carbondale, PA 18407
The answer is yes, according to the APA. A recent survey shows more Americans are seeking mental health treatment today. Part of the increase might be due to a dying taboo. Almost half of the respondents say there’s less of a stigma about getting professional help today. While this is great news, other barriers still exist that prevent access to mental health therapists. The same survey shows that only 70% of Americans believe they have adequate access to mental health services. At the same time, 97% of respondents state they are important.
