Behavioral Medicine Training
Access to behavioral health care is a national crisis. Almost 1 in 20 adults in the U.S. live with some form of serious mental illness, and there are not enough psychiatrists to give them the care they need.
An estimated 60% of Americans with behavioral health problems and nearly 90% of those with substance abuse problems are unable to get adequate care.
The reason? There is a severe shortage of trained prescribers. An estimated 65% of primary care physicians lack the time or training to diagnose and manage many psychiatric disorders, yet almost four out of five prescriptions for psychotropic drugs are written by physicians who aren’t psychiatrists.
