The recognition of the role that mental health plays in our schools and communities is one of the biggest revelations in the recent focus on wellbeing.  Additionally, the increased public attention on addiction, anxiety, depression, and suicide has helped to diminish the stigma associated with mental and emotional health. The explosion of solutions to address behavioral health, make this segment of healthcare one of the fastest growing industries. The risks involved in behavioral health are as varied as the types of challenges addressed and the many organizations designed to address them. 

The WTW Healthcare Practice has experience with the diverse array of behavioral health organizations and can help you to meet unique challenges specific to your organization.

Some of the challenges facing behavioral today include:

  • New technologies
  • Outcome measurement
  • Financing of care
  • Expansion of access to care
  • Health equity and systemic inequities in outcomes

  • M&A activity and consolidation
