A global pandemic, economic downturn, racial disparities and a variety of other dynamics in 2020 and into 2021 brought to light many barriers, gaps, and inequities in our health system. With some time to reflect and plan, how have leaders in the behavioral health space reacted to meet the mental health needs of the population? What does 2022 – and beyond – have in store to address the increasing demand for care and ensure access for all? Hear an elite panel of behavioral health plan leaders discuss steps their organizations have taken and plan to take to address issues such as provider shortages, renewed interest in telemedicine, and a growing spotlight on the mental health needs of adolescents and young adults.
