Healthy Lee and Lee County residents have identified mental health as a significant concern as evidenced by the 2017 PRC survey. Cost and the availability of mental health providers were chief concerns. A compounding factor is that only 55% of psychiatrists and 60% of non-MD mental health professionals accept insurance. What can you do? If you have employer sponsored health care, an Employee Assistance Program (EAP) or free screening may be available. If your employer offers telemedicine, many of those providers offer free or low cost remote (via phone or video chat) access to mental health professionals.
