Too Long; Didn't Read

The COVID-19 epidemic and the rise in public exposure to remote healthcare technologies have expedited the shift toward new contactless kinds of mental health support. Global spending on mental health technology has grown twofold since 2019 - from $203 million in 2019 to $491 million in 2022. In the US alone, almost 53 million adults live with a mental illness. The cost of this crisis will reach USD 16 trillion by 2030, including both direct and indirect costs. Mobile technology can reduce stigma by providing easy-to-access information about mental illness that helps prevent people seeking treatment without physical discrimination.
