Urgent Care for Mental Health

How can we address—and solve—2 of the biggest hurdles for patients in receiving mental health care?

“If you feel like your cough is bad enough to go to urgent care, you go and you can be treated. The same should apply to mental health. If a patient feels they need to be treated urgently, they should be able to find an appointment in the same way they would for their cough.” In this Mental Health Minute video, Tamir Aldad, MD, MBA, founder and CEO of Mindful Care, discusses accessibility and affordability—2 of the biggest hurdles for patients in receiving the mental health care they need.
