I know I mention all the time that it's important to get help when/if you need it. But it's not always as simple as that. There are often a number of barriers to getting the help that you need.
What do you think should be done to address these issues? Are there just not enough mental health professionals? Does there need to be monetary incentives to work in the mental health field? Does single-payer/Medicare-for-all address the insurance coverage problem? Do technology advancements need to be made so that it's easier to schedule appointments?
I'd love to hear your thoughts on why it can be so hard to access mental health care!
