Needs Statement

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention put the lifetime prevalence of having a mental illness at one in two for the U.S. general population.   It is estimated that approximately 85% of people with depression and or anxiety go undiagnosed.  Many of these individuals have other medical conditions. Based on a 2008 Milliman Research Report, across the nine most common chronic diseases the costs for care of those with untreated mental health disorders is in many cases almost triple that of those without. Given the high prevalence of mental health disorders in the general population, healthcare payers are putting emphasis on identification and treatment. This module aims to raise awareness of the U.S. prevalence of several common mental health disorders and focus on three for screening and follow-up.

Target Audience
