According to Children’s Rights, an estimated 80% of the over 400,000 children in foster care in the United States suffer from a mental health issue, compared to approximately 20% of the general population of children. With the onset of COVID-19, behavioral health in adolescents has become more prevalent, especially for foster care children. Now is the time states look at the way they are responding to foster care children in need. Through technology, you can help improve the lives of this vulnerable population to give them a brighter future.
Learn how your state can:
- Reduce the overall cost of behavioral health care
- Reduce referral time to adolescent treatment facilities and ER boarding
- Improve the lives of foster care children and their families through better patient outcomes
