Healio | Despite Challenges, Mental Health Care Has Bright Outlook

In recognition of Mental Health Awareness Month, Jeffrey A. Lieberman, MD, highlighted several points about the field of mental health as it stands today.

First, now is the best time in history for those with mental health disorders because the base of knowledge about these disorders is the biggest it has ever been, according to Lieberman, who is the Lawrence C. Kolb professor of psychiatry at Columbia University Medical Center in New York and a Healio Psychiatry Peer Perspective Board Member. However, he said it is important to recognize that there are issues with the accessibility and quality of mental health resources, as well as the stigma associated with them.
