But Will Insurance Cover It?

Mental Health Providers Turn To Telemedicine During COVID-19 Crisis

Doctor’s visits are still allowed while Illinois is under a shelter in place order. Continued treatment is especially important for people needing help with addiction or psychological issues, but what if offices are closed? In the linked article below, CBS 2 Chicago Morning Insider Lauren Victory looks at the impact of COVID-19 on mental health services.

Plus, the Morning Insiders compiled a list of helpful mental health resources: an informative guide from NAMI; online meetings for addiction recovery; free meditations, bed time stories, stretches and calming music; and a digital health community with 2 million subscribers.

Mental Health By The Numbers

About one in five adults has a diagnosable mental disorder. Mental illnesses are more common than cancer, diabetes or heart disease. Also, data shows that if you have a mental illness, your chance of having a substance use disorder is as high as 50%. Mental illness can affect persons of any age, race, religion, gender identity or socioeconomic status. People affected by mental illness include our church members, our friends and families, and ourselves, as well as all the people who support those experiencing mental illness. With proper care and treatment, between 70 and 90 percent of persons with mental illnesses experience a significant reduction of symptoms and an improved quality of life.

Approximately 1 in 25 adults in the U.S. (11.2 million) experiences a serious mental illness in a given year that substantially interferes with or limits one or more major life activities.


More than 90% of people who die by suicide show symptoms of a mental health condition.


18.1% of adults in the U.S. experience an anxiety disorder such as posttraumatic stress disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder and specific phobias.


Half of all chronic mental illness begins by age 14; three-quarters by age 24. Despite effective treatment, there are long delays—sometimes decades—between the first appearance of symptoms and when people get help.


Only 41% of adults in the U.S. with a mental health condition receive mental health services each year.
