America’s behavioral health crisis: The fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic

Mental and substance-use disorders worsen people's health and impose major costs on society. The COVID-19 crisis has only amplified these effects. This McKinsey Live session explores what healthcare leaders can do to mitigate behavioral-health impacts.

Traumatic stress, unemployment, and social isolation are exacerbating prior behavioral health conditions and bringing on new ones, adding an estimated $100 billion to $140 billion of spending on behavioral and physical health services in the United States during 2020 and 2021. In this McKinsey Live webinar, partner Erica Coe and senior expert Kana Enomoto discuss these issues and outline ways that healthcare leaders can counter the impacts that the COVID-19 outbreak has had on behavioral health.
