Massachusetts Blue Cross Blue Shield Foundation recently released survey findings that more than 1 in 3 adults reported needing behavioral health care for themselves or a family member over the last 12 months but only 1 in 4 received care. Despite advancements in science, medicine, and technology in mental health care over the past 20 years, a significant gap remains in brain health. This panel will discuss the recent discoveries in mental health care delivery, access, and innovation including drug discovery and development, new medication management tools, telepsychiatry, and digital therapeutics.
