Mental health care.
What a strange system. If you can even call it that.
It’s more like a bunch of disparate parts, quacking away on their own.
I know, I know. Silos happen in every industry.
But it’s especially bad in mental health care.
You need to find a therapist who accepts your insurance.
Is this provider in network?
Why does that facility not know what the other one is doing?
Do any of these mental health professionals ever talk to one another, or are they all just focused on their own businesses?
It’s bad. And it’s hard to know where to begin to make it better.
But, in my humble opinion, there is one big thing missing in the mental health care system.
And it’s not something that’s talked about very much.
