A new study by Cohen Veterans Network and the National Council for Behavioral Health finds that, despite increasing demand, a lack of awareness of services and social stigma around seeking mental health care, persists in America.
The root cause? Lack of access due to cost, limited resources, funding, social stigma and distance/ability to secure an appointment. Now more than ever, this must change. Dr. Anthony M. Hassan, Ed.D, LCSW, CEO and President of Cohen Veterans Network, and Linda Rosenberg, MSW, President and CEO, National Council For Behavioral Health, shine a light on this growing issue and how to reduce it by eliminating the social stigma of mental illness. Plus key information on how to access services, including state-by-state rankings, to improve the quality of your life.
