Your Virtual Counselor Will See You Now, Power of AI to Transform Mental Health
Mental health is now the most expensive part of our health care system, overtaking heart conditions, which used to be the costliest. Approximately $201 billion is spent on mental health annually. As more people reach old age, increasing the prevalence of certain health conditions, such as dementia, is expected to push this figure higher, with accompanying calls for new management strategies.
Today depression is affecting 300 million people worldwide. What’s worse is that the National Institute of Mental Health estimates that by 2030, depression is expected to be the leading cause of disease burden globally.
Mental illness and the potential stigma associated with seeking mental health treatment—there simply are not enough trained providers to meet the demands of the population.
